The Federal School Safety Clearinghouse is excited to announce the launch of SchoolSafety.gov. This website 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 emergencies.

SchoolSafety.gov includes:

  • The School Safety Readiness Tool is an assessment that 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 crucial school safety topics are needed to build awareness within the school community, promote vigilance, and build capacity to respond to incidents.

SchoolSafety.gov was developed to fulfill critical recommendations from the Federal Commission on School Safety.
