The Safe and Responsive Schools Framework is an approach to improving the behavior of students at school, and to preventing school violence. It is a structure that permits schools to engage in actions or strategies addressing three levels.

These are:

  • Creating a Positive Climate
  • Early Identification and Intervention
  • Effective Responses

School teams can use these three levels to assess current programs and activities in a school, to identify promising practices and programs that might be considered to supplement existing programs, and to prioritize actions needed.
