Safe Schools Info for Students and Parents Students need to be involved in meaningful ways in their schools. By becoming involved, students are able to build connections to fellow students and staff. These connections enable students to feel that they are part of a larger whole and foster awareness of how important their contributions can be. Students who are connected and involved are less likely to exhibit inappropriate behaviors and more likely to be involved in positive activities. Parental involvement in schools is seen as essential to a school's success both academically and with regard to safety. This webpage provides parents with information that is designed to enhance their understanding of issues that characterize the arena of school safety.
