School Safety and Security Assessment Criteria​

On February 24, 2021, the SSSC adopted a revised set of criteria to assist schools in guiding their school safety and security assessment, which is a strategic evaluation of a school's facilities and programs used to identify potential safety and security threats.  Assessments are to include consideration of the safety and security of a school's physical environment, climate and behavioral health environment, and related policies and trainings.  

The School Safety and Security Assessment Criteria Toolkit is a compilation of best practices and recommendations as developed by experts on the SSSC and additional workgroup members.
