Recognizing Five Years of Safe and Sound Schools

May 2018 marks five years since our founding. In this short time, we’ve visited communities in every state, sharing our free toolkits, programs, and resources. Help us reach more communities and develop new programs by donating today.

State of School Safety Report 2018

This first-ever report explores perceptions of safety at schools. The findings outline perceptions among stakeholders, and looks at the current state of threats, from threats received to future threats, as well as preparedness for those safety risks.


Welcome to Safe and Sound Schools. Founded by parents who lost children at Sandy Hook, we provide research-based tools and resources for crisis prevention, response, and recovery to help protect every school, every day.

Rethinking School Safety Together

We teach a collaborative approach to school safety that engages the school community in three active steps: Assess, Act, and Audit. We call this model Straight ‘A’ Safety Improvement.

Guided by national experts, educators, mental health, fire and law enforcement professionals, we gather and create free resources for immediate use in school communities across the country.
