- Preventing theft
Art Hand Jr., assistant superintendent of facilities and planning at Lodi Unified School District, offered advice to keep classrooms safe from theft:
Do not leave small portable electronic devices near windows. Keep them out of sight in a cabinet or near the center of the room.
If your classroom has blinds or curtains, close them at the end of the day.
"It's about visibility," said Hand. "Make it so people can't walk by and see what's available."
