Foster School Safety

Foster School SafetyIn 1999, following the Columbine shooting, the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU-Boulder) began partnering with the Office of the Attorney General to develop the Safe Communities-Safe Schools (SCSS) Model.  The SCSS Model was informed by the expertise of nationally renowned experts, including the founding director of the CSPV, Dr. Delbert Elliott, the director of the National School Safety Center, Ron Stephens, and James Comer, M.D., who developed the Comer School Development Program. 

Prevention science research consistently indicates that the risk and protective factors that predict youth violence are multi-contextual, occurring within the individual, family, peer group, school, and community contexts. The SCSS Model offers schools a strategic process to improve school safety and school climate, integrating key recommendations from the 2001 Columbine Review Commission’s Report with evidence-based violence prevention programs and strategies, including Safe2Tell Colorado, the model prevention initiative of the Colorado Attorney General’s Office.

Substance Abuse Trend and Response Task Force

Given the complexity of responding effectively to substance abuse issues, the Colorado General Assembly acknowledged the need for involving a diverse partnership of state government, local governments, and the private sectors, including legislators, child advocates, public health officials, drug treatment providers, child welfare workers, law enforcement officers, judges, and prosecutors.

To this end, the Colorado General Assembly established the Colorado Substance Abuse Trend and Response Task Force in 2013 as a continuation of the work of the State Methamphetamine Task Force.

The membership of the Colorado Substance Abuse Trend and Response Task Force consists of a chair, three vice-chairs and twenty-eight members.

The Colorado Attorney General serves of the chair of the Task Force.

Generous financial support from the El Pomar Foundation continues to be instrumental in moving forward the work of the Substance Abuse Trend and Response Task Force.

In-kind support from the Colorado Alliance for Drug Endangered Children, the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children, and Rise Above Colorado is of value to the Task Force in assisting communities.
