Overview

Self-reported by organization

A School Resource Officer (SRO) program is a "promising" strategy because it enables communities and schools to address school violence with both prevention and intervention techniques. Having an SRO on a school campus can deter problem situtations from arising.SROs enhance a school's capacity to address its safety and serucity concerns. When problems do arise, SROs can intervene quickly to address what is taking place. SROs can contribute to safe school planning efforst and offer their schools a resource to turn to when emergencies occus.Ultimately, the presence of an SRO assists in making the school safe and more secure for students, teachers and staff. The entire community benefits as well because learning is more likely to take place in such an environment.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
