Every district is concerned about the safety of its students. Board members and district administrators must work with local first responders to ensure safety and security plans are comprehensive and up-to-date. OSBA can help your district assess any security threats and train staff and the community on how they can help create safer schools.

This free resource includes tips to help school boards provide a safe and healthy meeting setting that permits positive interactions with school staff, students and visitors.
