What is SchoolSafety.Gov?
SchoolSafety.gov is a collaborative, interagency website created by the Federal government to provide schools and districts with actionable recommendations to create a safe and supportive learning environment where students can thrive and grow. The site serves as a one-stop access point for the American public and school communities to find information, resources, guidance, and best practices on a range of school safety topics and threats. Through the site, members of the kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) academic community can also utilize specific tools to prioritize school safety actions, find applicable resources, connect with state-specific and local school safety officials, and develop school safety plans.
SchoolSafety.gov is the public-facing vehicle of the Federal School Safety Clearinghouse, an interagency effort among the Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and Justice. The Clearinghouse serves as an ongoing and coordinated effort that includes regular interagency review of content and recommended best practices to keep schools safe, as well as the curation and distribution of resources, guidance, and tools for school communities across the country.
