After 23 years of exceptional achievement, the TKF team has taken the best practices and curriculum to create an efficacious program for external educators to deliver at their school sites. By training teachers in the Safe School model, TKF can scale effectively and fiscally and impact more students, schools, and communities. When fully deployed in San Diego, the Safe School Model can impact the lives of thousands of students, families, and communities in which they live and the long-term ROI is immeasurable.
Within 5 years, TKF desires to have its curriculum in over 50 San Diego schools, affecting over 50,000 students.
TKF plans to build a Restorative Training facility and completely convert to a fee-for-service model which will make TKF rely substantially less on fundraising. The Safe School Model expansion is the social enterprise option for TKF. Based on our research and presentations at National and International restorative practices conferences, we have determined that the demand for the Safe School Model is widespread and schools are willing to pay for this important curriculum especially in light of the current challenges schools face today.
San Diego Rotary funding will assist with the immediate technology needs for current and future delivery of programs. The LMS is a portal to help deploy and track all training initiatives. Safe School trained educators will be able to access curriculum and student materials, a video library, restorative resources, as well as TKF communications. Via the LMS, TKF will be able to deploy "real time" training, track compliance, conduct surveys, and extract student data.
Tasreen Khamisa (member) will lead the Safe School expansion project.
