School Safety and Security


The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) seeks to ensure that every student experiences a safe and supportive environment to ensure their best academic performance. As Connecticut schools develop plans for ensuring safety and security, the CSDE collaborates with the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) and the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS) to support schools in establishing policies, protocols, and practices to ensure safe, supportive, and welcoming environments for students.
