Xinran Wang

Abstract—This study is a case study that aims to explore the current situation, issues, and strategies faced by leaders and managers of a regular high school in Linyi City, Shandong Province, China, about security management. This study uses qualitative method, with semi-structured interviews conducted with three faculty members and managers of a high school in Linyi City. This study reveals that safety management in this school focuses on safety education and has set up monitoring systems, alarm systems, etc., and conduct safety drills from time to time. And regular feedback is given through summary meetings and other forms. There are still issues such as inadequate staffing, lack of cooperation between teachers and students, and lack of home-school contact and monitoring systems. As a result, various measures such as increasing security guards, setting up online monitoring platforms, and enhancing security knowledge education have been proposed. The findings of this study have implications for enhancing the level of security management in schools. In future studies, the sample should be expanded and the level of security management in elementary schools and universities should also be assessed.
