Keeping Your School Safe: Security Issues in Light of Tragedy

Vol. 14 No. 8

On April 21, a 16-year-old lost her life after a fight (allegedly over a boy) in the girls’ bathroom of a public school in Wilmington, Delaware. Rev. Sandra Ben of Pray Ground Community Church told the Delaware News Journal, “We know [violence] is happening in the streets. But now we are talking about violence happening in a place that normally should be a safe haven.”

In light of this tragic incident resulting in a student’s death, take measures to ensure your students’ continued safety on your school campus—and not all of them require money to be spent on facilities or security guards.

Q. I am new to this school. On our calendar, I have a reminder to “file IRS Form 720 by July 31.” My understanding is that Form 720 is a quarterly return that the school does not file—why would I file it in July?

School Lunch Programs: Up Quality and Reduce Cost

Vol. 14 No. 8

School-provided lunches are notorious for their unappealing presentation and tasteless “mystery meat”—at least, at most public schools.

Helping Students Find Summer Work

Vol. 14 No. 7

As March turns to April, the summer season feels closer than ever—which means your students may be anticipating seasonal employment. Perhaps you’ve heard murmurings from faculty or parents that the school should formalize relationships with community employers of students.

Such a project requires a large initial output of resources and research, and must be properly maintained from year to year. Still, a database helping your students find and connect with mission-appropriate employers might help more than just the newly employed in the long run. With that in mind, we’ve got some key points for the Business Office to hit while collecting resources for would-be student workers.
