Safe and Sound Schools conducts research to explore perceptions of safety among four main stakeholder groups: parents of students, students in middle school and high school, educators (teachers and other professionals working in schools), and the public at large.
The 2019 survey is currently open and we invite caregivers of school-aged students, middle- and high-school students, educators, public safety officials, and community members to participate. Click here to participate in the 2019 survey, conducted with support from faculty and students at Boston University College of Communication. Safe and Sound Schools will publish the results of the 2019 survey in the spring season.
In May of 2018, Safe and Sound Schools issued the results of the inaugural survey in its State of School Safety 2018 report. We hope the insights gained from this report will help school communities better tackle the challenge of school safety.

- Safety preparedness
- Areas of concern, including threats encountered
