Safe & Loved is a total school safety and engagement program that transforms school safety through inspiration and engagement. It gets rid of the old, rigid, and excessive and focuses only on the proven, wanted, and necessary!
Safe & Loved gives your school the skills, ability, materials, and support to make your environment SAFE and your teachers, students, and parents feel LOVED!
Nothing is more important than transforming and enhancing your morning arrival!
After all, if you can get beyond second period the chances of experiencing extreme violence drops to 25%. That is an amazing reduction and one of the main reasons why Safe & Loved is so focused on helping you improve your morning arrival. And for most schools--that's just 35 minutes or less! 35 minutes of focused and coordinated effort and everything can be changed!
The other reason we care so much about morning arrival is for the emotional well being of our school community. We believe that it is a shame for a student to get off the bus, walk through the bus loop, enter the main doors, walk down the hall, and enter their classroom without being greeted...not even once!
It's not enough to make your morning arrival safe. Your students and teachers must also feel loved.
The smaller the zones the easier it is to create more powerful engagements with students, filter for unwanted behaviors, and identify indicators of danger. Don't send a person to cover the bus loop with 450 kids. Send them to cover Zone 1 with 60 kids!
Since 1970, it's been known that if you want to make any place or person safer then you must increase or enhance these 3 things:
The teacher in the video accomplished all three!
By standing by the door she's watching the hall and students (1. Supervision). She's controlled who is coming and going (2. Access control) and by her vigilant, caring, and positive demeanor she's sending a very clear message (3. Territorial Reinforcement) that she cares, she's watching, and you're not going to be able to do whatever you like. That's ownership and we know from offenders that for them this translates into, "She's not an easy target--they're not an easy target."
We take what teachers love to do--connect with and make a difference in the lives of their students--and blend in 3 techniques that will make everyone safer.
This isn't about giving teachers more to do. It's about taking what they already love to do and making it better by rolling together a positive Engagement + Supervision + Access Control + Territorial Reinforcement into an easy to remember and simple to utilize method (E-SAT) that is guaranteed to make your school safer, your teachers happier, and your students feel loved!
The 7 Second Lockdown Program enables your school to lockdown in 7 seconds by following 4 simple progression & proficiency drills that last only 3 minutes and 30 seconds from start to clear and won't scare anyone or disrupt the educational process!
The 7 Second Lockdown treats the teacher as the hero of the story and builds on the inherent qualities of our teachers instead of working against them. It doesn’t use the fear of violence or failure to motivate teachers. The 7 Second Lockdown conditions them to be able to accomplish the few necessary and critical lifesaving tasks in 7 seconds or less.
We'll give you a technique (5-10-15) and the materials to help your teachers double as well as perfect their engagements.
Each school will receive a 7 Inner Strengths Worksheet as well as nearly 60 prepared course corrections (15 words or less) designed to grow a specific inner strength.
Students who excel possess 7 Inner Strengths. If we ever want to truly end school attacks then we have to make our students stronger. These course corrections will help you strengthen students today so they never choose to use violence in the future.
Schools using Safe & Loved receive ready made safety and engagement plans that highlight the most important tasks for each of the following segments of the school day.
It's very difficult to get cooperation when you say that we're going to make our day safer. It's too big and too broad. It's much easier and more reasonable to expect a helping hand when you say that we're going to make the first 35 minutes of the school day safer--who would like to help?
These plans double as worksheets. Just pull out the segment of the day you're enhancing and follow the checklist. Enhancing short, clearly defined segments of the school day will garner the most cooperation from your teachers and staff and therefore give you the greatest and the quickest return on your effort.
