Ways in which school leaders can establish "safe schools" are detailed in this guide book. It offers suggestions on how to involve students, parents, law enforcement officials, business and community leaders, and other concerned citizens. This resource guide is designed to help administrators accomplish five goals: (1) assess the school climate by identifying top safety issues; (2) determine safe-school goals; (3) develop a plan for reaching safe-school goals; (4) build a support network for policy development and plan implementation; and (5) maintain a system of continuing evaluation. The guide reviews factors that affect school safety and suggests getting started by creating a planning team. A special section addresses how to conduct a school-site assessment, focusing on what to do before the assessment begins; how to gather pertinent data; how to track and monitor school crime; and how to make campuses safer through good environmental design and sensible management and maintenance. The guide suggests that the law is at the heart of safe-school planning, and it defines the guiding parameters of what must be done. Two appendices provide model assessment questionnaires and list sample plans, policies, procedures, and codes. (RJM)

Understanding Gay and Lesbian Youth assists the classroom teacher, school counselor, and administrator in relating to gay and lesbian youth and creating accepting and supportive learning climates. David Campos begins with a discussion of the current state of affairs regarding gay and lesbian youth in schools, including a discourse on the developmental milestones, and provides practical strategies for working effectively with these students. The text, concise, yet comprehensive, features: - Two surveys to assess school climates toward gay and lesbian youth - Quizzes about gay and lesbian issues - Personal stories by gay and lesbian youth and adults Perhaps the most salient feature of Understanding Gay and Lesbian Youth is that each chapter poses a series of questions relating to today's society, such as: - Why are gay and lesbian youth considered "at risk"? - How does the development of gay and lesbian youth differ from that of heterosexual youth? - What do I do if a student tells me he or she is gay or lesbian?
