ED Launches Back-to-School Safety Campaign

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) announced a back-to-school safety campaign on Thursday in partnership with the U.S. Departments of Homeland Security, Health and Human Services, and Justice.  The awareness campaign is aimed at bringing attention to the federal resources on school safety currently available to schools, State and local officials, and parents and guardians.
The agencies will be launching resources, including webinars, infographics, toolkits, and other materials, throughout August and September.  All current resources are available on, with new materials to be released over the next two months on a dedicated “hub” on the school safety website:
The Federal School Safety Clearinghouse, a collaborative initiative between all of the federal agencies involved in the back-to-school awareness campaign, maintains the school safety website.  The website includes information on a range of topics, including mental health, school climate, and bullying prevention, among others.  The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, signed into law last year, formally established the clearinghouse.
