08-14-2012 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #30


Title
Office of Program Policy and Government Accountability 2011-2012 Best Practices for Safety and Security Annual Self-Assessment

Discussion

As required by Section 1006.07 (6), Florida Statutes, each District Superintendent must complete the annual Best Practices for Safety and Security Self Assessment Report for the Office of Program Policy and Government Accountability and include recommendations to the School Board that identify strategies and activities that the School District should implement in order to improve school safety and security as necessary. The School Board must receive the self-assessment results at a publicly-noticed School Board meeting so as to provide the public an opportunity to hear the School Board members discuss and take action on any reported findings as/if necessary. The report as approved by the board must be submitted to the Florida Department of Education.

The 2011-2012 assessment contains the same language throughout the report with the exception of question 6 (c) which has been added this year.

The 2011-2012 assessment format looks very much the same as previous years; however please note that there are two attachments to the Board Agenda Item, the actual assessment and an addendum. This year the assessment document was revised by an outside contractor and does not allow for comprehensive language to be inserted in the boxed area of each question.  The 2011-2012 completed self assessment is attached along with the addendum containing language that substantiates the report findings.



Recommendation
Accept the Superintendent's reccomendations based on review of the findings from the 2011-2012 Best Practices for Safety and Security Self-Assessment - OPPAGA.
