School Safety

Safe schools are fundamental to students' school successes and achievements. Consequently, providing a safe and orderly school environment remains an ever-present priority of the Mississippi Department of Education. School safety should be addressed through a comprehensive approach that focuses on prevention, intervention and response planning.

Training and technical assistance may be requested to provide guidance in the development of a safe and secure school environment for students, faculty and administrators.
