Comprehensive District Safety Plan SB 187

Senate Bill 187: Comprehensive School Safety Plan Purpose

The California Education Code (sections 32280-32288) outlines the requirements of all schools operating any kindergarten and any
grades 1 to 12, inclusive, to write and develop a school safety plan relevant to the needs and resources of that particular school.
In 2004, the Legislature and Governor recast and renumbered the Comprehensive School Safety Plan provisions in SB 719 and AB
115. It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting the provisions to support California public schools as they develop their mandated
comprehensive safety plans that are the result of a systematic planning process, that include strategies aimed at the prevention of,
and education about, potential incidents involving crime and violence on school campuses.
The historical requirement of the Comprehensive School Safety Plan was presented in Senate Bill 187, which was approved by the
Governor and chaptered in 1997. This legislation contained a sunset clause that stated that this legislation would remain in effect
only until January I, 2000. Senate Bill 334 was approved and chaptered in 1999 and perpetuated this legislation under the
requirement of the initial legislation.

Comprehensive School Safety Plans are required under SB 719 & AB 115 and contains the following elements:

Assessment of school crime committed on school campuses and at school-related functions
  • Child abuse reporting procedures
  • Disaster procedures
  • Suspension and expulsion policies
  • Procedures to notify teachers of dangerous pupils
  • Discrimination and harassment policies
  • School wide dress code policies
  • Procedures for safe ingress and egress
  • Policies enacted to maintain a safe and orderly environment
  • Rules and procedures on school discipline
  • Hate crime reporting procedures
The Comprehensive School Safety Plan will be reviewed and updated by March 1st every year. In July of every year, the school will
report on the status of its school safety plan including a description of its key elements in the annual school accountability report
