SAFER SCHOOLS NEWS-VOL. 31

Grand Opening!!SCHOOL VIOLENCE RESOURCE  CENTER

National Center for Rural Law Enforcement
 www.SVRC.net

On April 18, 2001 The National Center for Rural Law Enforcement officially opened the School Violence Resource Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. The Honorable Tim Hutchinson, United States Senator brought the Keynote Address and presided over the ribbon cutting at the new center. Dr. Alan Sugg, President of the University of Arkansas System and Dr. Lee Colwell, Director of the Criminal Justice Institute were on hand to meet and greet the many guests from around the country who came to celebrate this special occasion. Tommie Canady and Larance Johnson, the Director and Deputy Director respectively of the School Violence Resource Center welcomed the visitors and proudly toured them through the facility. Later the staff of Keys To Safer Schools.com was privileged to sit with Tommie and Larance and listen as they shared their vision for reducing the violence that plagues our schools. 

According to Mr. Canady, the School Violence Resource Center has three primary goals: 

 

  1. To research and evaluate school violence related initiatives, programs, and information and make their efforts available to the stakeholders across the nation. 

  2. To provide pertinent school violence information and resources through a web-based resource center. 

  3. To develop and deliver a school violence educational curriculum to stakeholders.

 

 

Ms. Johnson pointed out that they are not operating in a vacuum. They want and actively solicit input from all stakeholders and interested parties. "There is no point in producing a product that the schools do not need or do not want," she said. Mr. Canady stated that they are really concerned for the urban and rural schools in America.  The larger cities usually have amble resources for programming, but the smaller schools—which make up the largest portion of education system—often have the same needs but means of meeting those needs. The School Violence Resource Center hopes to help these smaller schools by applying the principle of efficiency. SVRC will conduct all the research into all the violence prevention programs they can.  The results will be posted on the website so that every school administrator can take advantage of this work. The superintendent of the smallest school in the nation will have at his/her disposal thousands of hours of surfing the Internet, researching many similar sounding programs and summarizing them for ease of choosing the best suited ones. All of this will be available at the click of a button.

The Keys To Safer Schools.com staff is excited about being asked to participate in this process. It is too early to fully tell what role we might play, but being part of such a program makes us look ahead with anticipation. 

If any of our regular subscribers and/or associates have programs that you would like to recommend to the SVRC, please forward the link or other details directly to them (being sure to mention Keys) or send it to us at Keys@KeysToSaferSchools.com and we will get it to them for consideration.
