Budget Recommendation for Minnesota School Safety

Kids Getting On Bus
Gov. Tim Walz is proposing funding for three HSEM programs aimed at keeping Minnesotans safe and communities resilient before, during and after emergencies and disasters.

The Minnesota School Safety Center, with a staff of three people, conduct hundreds of school safety trainings at districts across the state for educators and school resource officers. Over recent years, HSEM has seen an increase in requests for training and school safety assessments. Gov. Walz recommends funding for two additional staff members to meet this growing need.

Training for Improved Safety

​Educators around the state are accustomed to preparing lesson plans for their students. In the same way, school administrators are accustomed to preparing for what could be their school's worst day.

Training and preparation are key components to keeping students, faculty and staff safe--not just during an emergency, but before and after as well.

Read about different training opportunities and lessons learned in our January newsletter.
