The Federal School Safety Clearinghouse is excited to share that a new version of SchoolSafety.gov is now live. The updated site reflects a streamlined design and encompasses new topics, subtopics, and resources to address a broader range of school safety threats and issues.
In addition to its existing suite of tools and resources, the updated site now features eight core school safety topic pages:
- Bullying and Cyberbullying
- Emergency Planning
- Infectious Diseases and Public Health
- Mental Health
- School Climate
- Targeted Violence
- Threat Assessment and Reporting
These topic pages allow members of the kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) academic community to more easily locate and access school safety resources, tools, best practices, and guidance. Several topic pages also include aligned subtopics for users to drill further into a particular area of interest and find the resources most applicable to them. All resources previously on the site remain – they may just be located under a new topic based on the reorganized layout.
Driven by an agile approach and direct end-user feedback, the updated layout ensures a dynamic, scalable, and sustainable website that allows for the integration of new school safety topics and related resources as they arise.
