What is a “School Safety Assessment”?

Safety and security assessments provide educators with an independent appraisal of safety measures already in place, and recommendations for enhancing those measures with improvements at the building and district levels. School leaders use our security assessments in multiple ways:
·  Risk management tool for reducing crime and violence threats, risks, and potential liability
·  School-community relations tool to demonstrate a district’s commitment to security prior to a crisis.
·  Documentation of school district needs in advance of a levy campaign, or as part of a grant proposal.
School safety assessments are district-specific to address your unique concerns and needs, not pre-packaged comments and forms with a few name changes. They are designed to help educators be proactive, not reactive, with school safety.
And at National School Safety and Security Services, we believe it is important for school security assessments to reflect both the positive safety measures already in place, as well as the areas for continued planning and improvement.
