Indiana School Safety

School Safety in Indiana is a community-wide responsibility.  It doesn't start and stop at the classroom door.  Students face many risks and hazards in their learning environment, whether in school, at home, on the sports field, or at leisure with friends and family.  We take a holistic approach to school safety and develop programs and processes which consider safety and security for the whole student.

The Indiana School Safety Hub was created to provide streamlined information and safety-related resource for our entire learning community.  Visit the Indiana School Safety Hub site to learn what we are doing to secure our schools.
