School Safety and Security

A top concern for any school district is the safety of its people: students, teachers, staff, and administrators.

School safety and security has always been a priority, but schools are now faced with deeper and more critical challenges.

A comprehensive school policy on school safety is included as part of the PRESS policy service. IASB has been very involved with the issue of school safety and security for a number of years. The Association has authored legislation regarding the School Safety Drill Act; participated as a member of the Illinois School Security and Standards Task Force and the Illinois Terrorism Task Force; and hosted School Safety Seminars at the Joint Annual Conference.
