We Have A Singular Mission: To Protect Our Children
School security is a complex issue with no simple, single solution. The National School Shield® program is committed to addressing the many facets of school security, including best practices in security infrastructure, technology, personnel, training, and policy. Through this multidimensional effort, National School Shield® seeks to engage communities and empower leaders to help make our schools more secure.
