Event Description

The Summit is designed for all members of the K-12 school safety community, including federal, state, and local school leaders, to learn about and share actionable recommendations for creating and sustaining safe and supportive learning environments.

The event will feature keynote addresses, panel discussions, and one-on-one interviews with government, private sector, and school safety community leaders. Sessions will cover the latest research, resources, programs, and guidance on issues such as violence prevention, cybersecurity, school climate, emergency planning, student mental health, and physical security.

CISA welcomes participation from any individual with a passion for improving school safety. The subject matter covered during the Summit will be particularly relevent to K-12 school and district administrators; principals and superintendents; school-based law enforcement; teachers and school staff; mental health practitioners; first responders; federal, state, and local government partners and other school safety and security professionals. There is no cost to attend. Registration for the Summit will open in mid-September. For more information visit: https://www.cisa.gov/national-school-safety-summit.
