Safe and Supportive Schools

Campaign advocates for the inclusion of the Safe and Supportive Schools framework in Chapter 284 of the Acts of 2014, which focused on gun control. The provision requires schools to develop an action plan for creating safe and supportive environments and establishes a commission to assist schools through recommendations, grant programs, and technical assistance.. Governor Deval Patrick signs a provision into law realizing the Campaign’s efforts to establish a statewide “safe and supportive framework” to assist schools to create learning environments. This provision improves educational outcomes for youth with behavioral health conditions.
