Now Available: Federal School Safety Clearinghouse

The Federal School Safety Clearinghouse, SchoolSafety.gov, is a one-stop-shop of resources for Kindergarten through Grade 12 (K-12) administrators, educators, parents and law enforcement to use to prepare for and address various threats related to safety, security, and support in schools. Resources include free information, guidance, best practices, and tools that make school safety initiatives more actionable in schools. Federal agencies will continually expand and refine resource materials in coordination with partners and stakeholders.

SchoolSafety.gov includes:

  • The School Safety Readiness Tool, an assessment that assists users in evaluating their respective school’s safety posture across ten foundational elements of school safety. After completing the assessment, users are provided an 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, plans, 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.
