WHAT we do
Schools must be safe havens for teaching and learning, free from crime and violence. The presence of any incident of this nature affects not only the victim, but also the perpetrator, bystanders, any instruction or program taking place, the school itself; indeed, the whole community.
In cooperation and collaboration with the New York State Education Department/Office of Student Support Services, Measurement Incorporated operates the New York State Center for School Safety. The Center offers a statewide professional development and technical assistance center providing direct support to schools and districts in creating and maintaining safe and healthy learning environments for all New York State students.
Center staff are seasoned school safety professionals with expertise in comprehensive models of safe and supportive learning environments, crisis management, bullying prevention, and student learning.
