States Leading on School Safety
CCSSO's School Safety Steering Committee will also inform how we will continue to support states in efforts to prevent violence from ever taking place by fostering safe, supportive schools that address the emotional well-being of all children.These two documents are a collection of links to state specific school safety task forces, advisory councils or commissions and available school safety resource hubs and websites.
CCSSO will continue to update these lists as we receive more information. If you would like to submit a link for your state, please contact email@example.com.
CCSSO will continue to work with and engage external partner organizations in different ways to ensure we support and inform work to find strategies to keep students, teachers, and staff safe while at school. The following resources represent the growing conversation on school safety at the national level.
