SchoolSafety.gov is a website recently created by multiple federal agencies. The site aims to help schools prevent, protect, mitigate, respond to, and recover from emergency situations. In collaboration, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Department of Education (ED), U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) created the site, which has a wealth of information to offer. Its major sections provide resources and guidance on:

  • Bullying and Cyberbullying
  • Mental Health
  • Threat Assessment and Reporting
  • School Climate
  • School Security Personnel
  • Emergency Planning
  • Physical Security
  • Recovery
  • Training, Exercises, and Drills

There are also sections on getting started, which includes “creating an action plan” and “assessing the efforts you’re taking to address school safety.”
