Safe Schools and Safe Students

Schools and Safe Students in Virginia was developed by the Virginia Department of Health's Injury and Violence Prevention Program with input from the Virginia Department of Education and the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services to provide schools with a useful, up-to-date reference on school and student safety.

Student-Led Safety Fair Planning Kit

The Injury Prevention Program has developed a peer education tool, a safety fair kit, for elementary and middle school-age children. This safety fair kit is an innovative tool that enables groups of children to teach others about safety. It can be implemented by elementary to middle school aged children. The kit can also be used by service clubs and scout troops to earn merits.

With this tool, children will be safety educators for their peers and/or younger children by planning and holding a safety fair. The kit includes topical facts and tip sheets on a few safety issues to guide the children in their research and planning of their activities and safety booths.
