A nonprofit founded by the parents of two children killed at Sandy Hook School nearly 10 years ago is out with their 2021 State of School Safety Report. Safe and Sound Schools was founded by Michele Gay and Alissa Parker.
The survey of students, parents and school officials is conducted annually to identify gaps in attitudes about school safety and to come up with effective strategies for crisis prevention, response, and recovery. The national survey was discussed Friday at the National Association of School Resources Officers’ school safety conference in Florida.
The survey was conducted from late March to early April by interviewing 600 parents, 600 upper-grade students, 370 public safety officials and 500 school stakeholders, including administrators, teachers and health professionals.
