Federal School Safety Clearinghouse Introduces SchoolSafety.Gov Ahead of 2022-23 School Year

As schools and districts look ahead to the next school year, the Federal School Safety Clearinghouse has provided the K-12 community with a variety of resources and tools available on SchoolSafety.gov to assist in safety and security planning efforts. School personnel can use the site to prioritize school safety actions, connect with state-specific and local school safety officials, discover grants and funding opportunities, and find applicable resources, guidance and evidence-based practices to create a comprehensive and holistic school safety program.

SchoolSafety.gov features and tools include:

  • Grants Finder Tool: Supports schools and districts in more easily locating and determining the applicability of Federal funding opportunities to keep school communities safe
  • Safety Readiness Tool: Assists users in evaluating their respective school’s safety posture across ten elements and provides a personalized action plan with options for consideration
  • State Information Sharing Tool: Enables schools to locate and access state-specific school safety programs, contacts, and opportunities
  • Resource Library: Provides actionable resources, guidance, training, and fact sheets that can be filtered by audience, intended application, topic, and more 
  • Calendar of Events: Features upcoming webinars, training sessions, and conferences for school safety personnel, administrators, educators, and parents

You can also find a two-page overview highlighting these tools and other features available on SchoolSafety.gov to support K-12 school communities in their ongoing school safety planning efforts. We encourage you to download and share this with your members, stakeholders, networks and schools and districts in your communities this summer and throughout the upcoming school year as you see fit.
