The paper notes that in response to the unfortunate circumstances of September 11, 2001 and the tragedies that have occurred on school campuses throughout the US, schools, private corporations and government agencies have taken a pro-active stand on developing safety and security plans to protect their employees, visitors, students and others. This paper reviews the relevant peer-reviewed and scholarly literature concerning safety and security plans in order to determine what is needed and desirable in such plans so as to identify deficiencies or opportunities for improvement in a specific school setting. An analysis of what additions or changes are required to the specific schools' safety and security plans is followed by a summary of the research and important findings in the conclusion.
