School Safety Resources
The California Education Code (sections 32280-32288) outlines the requirements of all public school districts operating any schools (including charter schools), serving grades kindergarten through 12 to write and develop a Comprehensive School Safety Plan (CSSP) that includes strategies to prevent and educate about potential incidents involving crime and violence on school campuses.
The following resources are intended to assist Santa Barbara County School Districts with their school safety plans.
