by Deegan, William J., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 135; 1493009
Abstract (Summary)

This study examines the effectiveness of California state regulations to include a narrative describing each public school's Comprehensive School Safety Plan (CSSP) within the mandated annual reporting required under the School Accountability Report Cards (SARC). The study examines the standards necessary to develop and implement emergency plans, both on a national and state level; the accountability that is achieved by the SARC reporting requirements for CSSPs, and the reality on the ground in terms of public access to and awareness of CSSPs and how well they serve as adequate emergency plans. In addition to an analysis of CSSP data compiled from the SARC reports of a sample of Southern California K-12 public schools, several schools' complete emergency plan is examined for adequacy against a review template developed utilizing national and state standards.
