Unsafe School Choice Option: The United States Department of Education (USDOE), through the authorization of No Child Left Behind (NCLB), required states to develop a method of identifying a persistently unsafe school (Section 9532, H.R. 1, NCLB). OSPI recently completed this process and has made available the following information on the Washington State School Safety Center Web site. The purpose of the Safety Center is to provide relevant information and resources to assist schools, parents and students on the broad range of safe schools issues.
