Welcome to: Safety, Emergency Preparedness, and Response in Our Schools
Creating a safe learning environment in our schools is a growing concern nationwide. Safety has moved from outside our facilities to inside our schools and includes such issues as active shooters, bullying, harassment, and physical violence, in addition to non-physical threats such as social and emotional safety.

Identify your safety concerns and begin developing a plan to create a safer learning environment for your students.
