About

Our schools and communities are contending with many factors that affect the conditions for learning, such as bullying, harassment, violence, and substance abuse.

The National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments (NCSSLE) is funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students to help address such issues. Specifically, the Center

  • Provides training and support to state administrators, including 11 grantees funded under the Safe and Supportive Schools grant program, school and district administrators, institutions of higher education, teachers, support staff at schools, communities and families, and students 
  • Seeks to improve schools' conditions for learning through measurement and program implementation, so that all students have the opportunity to realize academic success in safe and supportive environments

This website serves as a central location for the Center. In particular, it includes information about the Center’s training and technical assistance, products and tools, and latest research findings. We welcome you to explore and discover, ask questions, and share your perspective.
