DC School Safety Resource Guide

The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Educaiton (DME) has compiled a resource guide to help schools navigate available resources and supports to enhance safety and wellness for their campuses.

This includes a DC School Safety Resource one-pager, contacts and information on how to request services from the Department of Behavioral Health, information on weekly calls for Safe Passage Priority Areas, and details on communication channels with public safety agencies and available resources.

You can download the full resource guide here.


School Safety Enhancement Committee

In 2023, DME convened a School Safety Enhancement Committee with the goal of producing actionable recommendations on the ways that schools and all those within the school-supporting ecosystem can ensure our public schools are safe for children and youth.

The School Safety Enhancement Committee is comprised of representatives and experts from city education and public safety agencies, the Council of the District of Columbia, and school communities and families. This group convened between November 2023 and January 2024, delivering a final report, Strengthening School Safety in Washington, DC, to the Mayor and Council in March 2024.
