About Safety Transfer

A Safety Transfer meeting occurs when there is an incident that threatens the safety and welfare of a student.

  • The student and/or family reports safety concerns to the school administration.
  • The Administrator proceeds to investigate the incident at school and advises the family to request a police report to document the incident if one has not already been written.

A Safety Transfer meeting consists of:

  • The student, his/her family, and a school representative meet with a Program Administrator for Student Support Services
  • This team reviews the student’s academic and behavior successes and notes areas for improvement, and reviews the circumstances, police report and other information relevant to a Safety Transfer
  • The team collectively develops an action plan that all members contribute toward addressing the reason for referral and assisting the student’s success
  • If deemed necessary, the student can be transferred to another school by the Program Administrator for Student Support Services, with agreement from the parent/guardian
  • A Child Welfare and Attendance Liaison (CWAL) is assigned to follow-up with the student and site-based student support services staff (e.g.: Counselor, Wellness Coordinator, LSP, etc.) on the action plan and to provide resources/linkages for a successful transition back to the school
