Minnesota School Safety Center is Getting a Boost!

Kids Getting on School Bus
​Did you ever think of a school as a miniature community? If not, that’s okay: The Minnesota School Safety Center (MnSSC) does. 

Just like regular communities, school communities need infrastructure: transportation (school bus operations), healthcare (school nurses), food systems (lunchroom procedures) and public safety. That last part is where the MnSSC comes in. They help schools develop guidelines and processes to run smoothly and stay safe from threats, from fires to intruders to severe weather, just to name a few.

As families enter a new school year, learn how staff are getting some extra help to keep more schools safe in our latest blog.

Minnesota School Safety Center Newsletter

The Minnesota School Safety Center (MnSSC) cares about the safety of our schools. The MnSSC provides training and resources to schools to help them prepare, respond, mitigate and recover from all hazard emergencies.

Contact the MnSSC team for more information: 

New this fall, the MnSSC will issue quarterly newsletters to keep schools and their partners informed of training opportunities and resources.
