Published: February 11th, 2020

The Federal School Safety Clearinghouse is excited to announce the launch of SchoolSafety.gov, a website that provides the academic community with a one-stop shop for school safety best practices and resources to create a safe and supportive learning environment where students can thrive and grow. SchoolSafety.gov aims to help schools prevent, protect, mitigate, respond to, and recover from emergency situations.

 

SchoolSafety.gov includes:

  • The School Safety Readiness Tool, an assessment which assists users in evaluating their respective school’s overall safety posture across 10 foundational elements of school safety and generates a tailored Action Plan with task prioritization, options for consideration, aligned resources, and grant opportunities specific to individual needs;
  • A Secure Information Sharing Platform for designated school personnel to share school safety ideas, practices, and tactics in a protected environment; and
  • A wide array of resources and Best Practices on key school safety topics to assist with building awareness within the school community to promote vigilance and build capacity to respond to incidents.

 

SchoolSafey.gov was developed to fulfill key recommendations from the Federal Commission on School Safety.
