Text (slide 4):
Persistently Dangerous Schools
- The State, in consultation with a representative sampling of LEAs, should develop the criteria to be used in identifying unsafe schools.
- Such criteria must be objective and could include data such as the number of times a firearm was brought into a school, the number of fights, etc.
- The State should look for trends in the data or patterns of incidents within the current or most recent school year in determining if a school should be designated as persistently dangerous.
