During the summer vacation months, many American school children head to camp. There are camps offering all kinds of special activities and geared to special interests from athletics, to computer technology, to chess. VOA’s Susan Logue visited a camp in the mountains of North Carolina that was designed for campers with special needs.
School Safety Partners is dedicated to creating long-term funding partnerships to support school safety best practices. We are both a community of interest and a facilitator of joint research projects, reaching out to the general public as well as stakeholders in the public, private, non-profit, and academic sectors. Our purpose is to create a space for stakeholders where true partnering can occur in order to make school safety sustainable beyond Federal funding. Since our start in January, 2008, our projects have addressed the legislative, training, compliance, funding, and public awareness sides of school safety.
