Whole School Comprehensive Safety Plans

The Whole School Comprehensive Safety Plan is a part of CPS’ effort to create a more holistic approach to school safety.

Community Feedback Meetings

We want to hear from you. Join us to discuss the Whole School Safety Process at one of our 2022 feedback sessions led by our Community-Based Partners.

View Meeting Schedule

In 2021, CPS partnered with five Community-Based Organizations in a collaborative effort to reimagine safety and develop trauma-informed Whole School Safety Plans.

As part of the process, schools are instructed to form cross-representative committees to develop comprehensive Whole School Safety Plans outlining the school’s vision, priorities, and strategies to create an environment of physical, emotional and relational safety. The process was designed to achieve the following:

  • Consider Whole School Safety Alternative Recommendations to the School Resource Officer (SRO) Program
  • Consider whether to keep the SRO Program at the school (Keep 2, 1 or 0 SROs)
  • Local School Councils will vote on the Whole School Safety Plan no later than June 15, 2022

Schools are encouraged to think holistically about their school’s individual needs with consideration to recommendations that came out of an extensive community-led process. In addition, schools can be inspired by other school models across the district who have been successful in transitioning to a more holistic and proactive approach.
