“Safety culture” is the collection of the beliefs, perceptions, and values that our school community shares in relation to the risks within our organization. Our robust safety culture assures that all members of our school community feel a personal responsibility toward maintaining a safe and secure campus for all.
Comfort Vs. Control®-It's About Creating a SAFER
Ukeru Systems®- A safe, comforting, and restraint-free approach to crisis management
Ukeru® is a simple, yet highly effective approach to crisis management that offers an alternative to coercive behavior management techniques. Using a trauma-informed approach, Ukeru is the only restraint-free program combining hands-on training, theoretical concepts, practical tools, and specialized equipment to safely manage—and diffuse—crises. CTS has formally adopted Ukeru to significantly reduce the number of physical restraints using this intervention protocol, with the goal of eliminating the use of physical restraints at our school.

The Clock Tower Schools is Creating an Environment of Comfort vs. Control®. Recently, The Clock Tower Schools held a training on an innovative crisis prevention program offering an alternative to the use of restraint and seclusion. Ukeru® is a safe, comforting crisis prevention program developed by and for organizations like ours.
The Mandt System®
The Mandt System® is a person-centered, values-based process used to encourage positive interaction with others. The concepts offered in Mandt promote respect and dignity for all people. There is emphasis on the team approach to ensure well-being and safety in both non-physical and physical interactions. Physical strategies are taught as a last resort and least restrictive option in the event a student’s behavior poses a substantial and immediate threat of harm. The Mandt System prohibits all floor restraints.
