One added item should be enforcement of the rules (specially dress and visible ID badges); this does not cost much money but it sets a new climate within all schools. Without enforcement, no tools, devices, new procedures, etc will work. Let's hope the ISD staff, administration and trustees stand strong to do what is right and do not let the fear of lawsuits leverage actions. Just my thoughts.
