Research in the 4J School District: Feeling Safe / Being Safe at School

Mahlum Architects has received approval from the 4J Instruction Department to ask for your participation in an important district-wide research project. Educational facility designers around the world hope to address school safety in a new, holistic way by understanding the diverse viewpoints of students, teachers and parents.

What is the process?

In order to understand what “feeling safe” means for different stakeholders at your school, we have created a brief 9-question anonymous survey in digital and printed formats. The survey questions have been pre-approved by the 4J Instruction Department. We ask that students, teachers and parents of grades 5-12 complete the questionnaire. We will analyze the results and develop recommendations for facility improvements that will be shared with school districts and planners nationwide.

Who are we?

Mahlum Architects is a leader in educational facility design in the Pacific Northwest, and we have recently worked with your district on the new Roosevelt Middle School. René Berndt, Associate and K-12 Designer at Mahlum, is a member of the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE) and conducts research to improve learning environments.
