The mission of the NYS Safe Schools Initiative is to help schools across the state implement effective school safety strategies and plans to enhance emergency preparedness. The state is also committed to assisting schools by educating them on valuable ways to foster good communication between school staff, students, and law enforcement agencies. The strategies and plans as well as the cooperative relationships will allow schools to better identify and address the needs and concerns or our school students, creating environments where students can learn, grow, and thrive.
