The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) will be hosting the 2022 National Summit on K-12 School Safety and Security on November 1-2, 2022. This two-day virtual event will convene school safety experts, practitioners, and leaders from across the country to discuss current threats in school safety and explore research-informed strategies for addressing security challenges and risks in K-12 schools.
The Summit is designed for all members of the K-12 school safety community, including federal, state, and local school leaders, to learn about and share actionable recommendations for creating and sustaining safe and secure learning environments. It is intended to both foster a nationwide dialogue on the most critical school safety issues, as well as equip school stakeholders and personnel with resources, training, and expertise to apply in their local school settings and communities.
The event will feature keynote addresses from government and private sector leaders, as well as panels on a range of school safety topics and threats. Sessions will cover the latest research, resources, programs, and guidance on issues such as cybersecurity, targeted violence, emergency planning, and physical security.
Educators, school-based law enforcement, administrators, principals, school safety professionals, community liaisons, and policymakers from across the nation are invited to participate. There is no cost to attend.
Registration for the Summit will open in mid-August. For more information, please visit cisa.gov/national-school-safety-summit.
