School Safety and Security

Maintaining order and security in and around public schools is essential to creating learning environments to which students can meet high academic standards, educators can teach towards those standards, and parents can be assured that their children are learning in a safe and positive school setting.

New York State law requires every school district to develop a comprehensive district-wide safety plan. Read the the New York City District-wide School Safety Plan and the Parent Guide to School Safety and Emergency Preparedness.
