the information provided in the protective schools
handbook will be of interest to educators, school administrators,
policy makers, community leaders, business leaders, parent groups,
and researchers seeking:
to conceptualize an environmental approach
to make prevention a seamless part of what all
members of a school community do every day.
to identify the strengths of individual schools
and target areas for future growth.
to formulate goals for linking prevention with
the academic mandate of the school system to integrate concepts
they may have read aboutin different places at different times
into a comprehensive vision of prevention.
