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.

CPS has engaged community organizations to help design a process to develop a menu of trauma-informed approaches to safety for school communities to consider as alternatives to the School Resource Officer program. Through an unprecedented partnership, the five selected community based organizations will lead community engagement and develop safety solutions to share with the district as potential options for schools to adopt.

Once completed, these alternative safety options will be presented to the school safety committees and Local School Councils of all 55 schools that currently have the SRO program. During the budget planning season, these school communities will each prepare a safety plan. CPS has committed to developing equitable funding opportunities to implement safety plans at any of these schools as they review and consider the Whole School Safety Recommendations.
