 NCJRS: School Safety Spotlight -- Summary   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The Center for the Prevention of School Violence defines school violence as "any behavior that violates a school's educational mission or climate of respect or jeopardizes the intent of the school to be free of aggression against persons or property, drugs, weapons, disruptions, and disorder" (Center for the Prevention of School Violence, 2002).
The school has strong leadership, caring faculty, family and community involvement that includes law enforcement officials and representatives of community-based organizations, and student participation in the design of programs and policies.
Schools that incorporate these characteristics will achieve improved academics, reduced disciplinary referrals and suspensions, greater staff morale, and enhanced safety (Safeguarding Our Children: An Action Guide, American Institute for Research, U.S. Department of Education, 2000).

New York State's school bus seat belt law requires all school buses manufactured after July 1, 1987 to be equipped with seat belts.
The law states that children under the age of four must be restrained in a federally approved car seat while riding on a school bus [Section 1229-c(11), NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law].
