Safe and Sound Schools
Empowering a Nation of Safer School Communities
Safe and Sound Schools




Welcome to Safe and Sound. Founded by parents who lost children at Sandy Hook School, we are dedicated to empowering community members to learn how they can join hands, hearts, and minds to make schools safer.

Join the Safe and Sound Youth Council

The Safe and Sound Youth Council is a student-driven school safety program for high school students. Students in the Safe and Sound Youth Council will lend their creativity, leadership, and critical thinking to improve school safety through yearly service projects.

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.

Tools and Resources for Safer Schools

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.


Safe and Sound’s panel of school safety experts combine deep practical knowledge with engaging delivery to inspire and educate your school community. From keynotes to hands-on workshops and community-wide forums, our speakers can adapt their delivery approach to meet the unique needs of your event.
