Student Safety


Keeping schools safe sign

NVUSD recognizes that students and staff have the right to a safe and secure campus where they are free from physical and psychological harm. The District is fully committed to maximizing school safety and to creating a positive learning environment that includes strategies for violence prevention and high expectations for student conduct, responsible behavior, and respect for others. The District also recognizes the importance of protecting district property, facilities, and equipment from vandalism and theft.

All California public schools kindergarten and grades one through twelve must develop a comprehensive school safety plan, per California Education Code sections 32280-32289.

Since 1999, California schools have enacted safety protocols meant to protect students and staff from gun violence. State law requires all public schools in California to have safety plans in case of an emergency, and for those plans to be updated annually.

Student Threat Assessment

NVUSD is committed to assuring the safety of all school community members. To help meet this end, a procedure was identified to assess student threats of violence, assist with conflict resolution, and document that process. This protocol is an important piece of our PBIS system, which aims to create a safe climate at all schools in the district. It is designed to be completed by a team of responders which could include administrators, psychologists, counselors, school resource officers, social workers, nurses, teachers and other support personnel.
