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.

In Spring 2021, schools with the School Resource Officer (SRO) Program were instructed to form cross-representative Whole School Safety Committees to develop comprehensive “Whole School Safety Plans” to achieve the following:

  • Considers Whole School Safety Alternative Recommendations to the SRO Program
  • Considers the decision on 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 July 14, 2021

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.
