The Safety Collaborative in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), Local District is a unique coordinated effort to address school safety. The participation of diverse agencies demonstrates the importance of protecting the school environment and recognizes the necessity for a safe learning environment where students are not disrupted in their academic studies. It also demonstrates that violence prevention in schools alone cannot be the source of prevention. In having a variety of stakeholders, schools not only obtain input from other sources, but are also able to cover aspects of safety that schools cannot supply themselves.
