What is it?

The Kentucky School Educator Endorsement is designed to prepare certified P-12 educators and school administrators to promote and maintain a positive, safe, and healthy school culture, which is conducive to high academic achievement. School safety continues to be an issue of paramount importance.

The school year of 1997-98 proved to communities across the country from Oregon to Kentucky that violence at school can cause loss of students’ lives and it can happen anywhere and at anytime. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that regarding non-fatal crimes, students were victims of 1.9 million crimes while they were in school in the year 2000.

For students to fulfill their academic potential in school, schools must be safe and secure places for all students, teachers, and staff members. For school climate to be conducive to high academic performance the educational leaders need to be prepared to handle any crisis which may arise.

Murray State University in cooperation with the Kentucky Center for School Safety is offering a twelve-hour School Safety Educator Endorsement.
