School administrators need to establish safe academic environments. Emphasizing effective strategies and practices that emerge from collaborative, community-building efforts, Calabrese shows how administrators, teachers, parents, and students can work together to ensure physical and emotional safety. The system of communication introduced by Leadership for Safe Schools-which focuses on constructive activities, and establishing a common cause among diverse groups of individuals-can be designed to fill the unique needs of every school.
Raymond L. Calabrese is Professor of Educational Leadership at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
