School Security Gets a Boost from Cooperating Federal Agencies


A coalition of federal agencies has created SchoolSafety.gov, a website to help keep school communities safe. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is joined in the initiative by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S.Department of Health and Human Services

Earlier, in March, 2018, the Federal Commission on School Safety was established to help keep schools safe. Its final report, released in December 2018, “recommended that the federal government create a clearinghouse to provide school safety strategies and serve as a central location for federal resources.” That’s what’s being done now.

The SchoolSafety.gov website has a host of suggestions and resources in nine categories to help keep schools safe. It’s a great web-based initiative. Parents and schools can create a personalized action plan around it for their own settings.
