    1. 22-23 Safety plan

    Yearly Safety Plan:

    • Section 1 Establish team

    • Section 2 Goals

    We need to base this off current crime statistics. COVID Year had none. 22-23 has 26 suspensions. 2018-2019 had more. Increased drug suspension. Abuse issue w/ vape pens that are nic. 

    1. Reduce physical confrontations and how do we serve repeat students, reduce robberies, and implement RJ. Support and expand this with students, staff, admin how to solve on their own. 

    2. Increase student engagement and attachment to school. Purpose: increase engagement, graduation rates. Strategy is PROPS, no bully training. 

    3. Name the timings for next year drills. September, October (Great CALI SHAKE), and Lockdown drill in March.

    Lydia - Related to vapes and weed. Edibles are harder to tell. 

    Moy - Mentioned selling products to other students.
