The National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments is funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Supportive Schools. The Center offers information and technical assistance to states, districts, schools, institutions of higher learning, and communities focused on improving school climate and conditions for learning. We believe that with the right resources and support, educational stakeholders can collaborate to sustain safe, engaging and healthy school environments that support student academic success.
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.
Our 3 main areas of support include:
- Providing training and support to state administrators, including 27 grantees funded under the Mental Health Service Professional Demonstration Grant program, 15 grantees funded under the Project Prevent Grant program, five grantees funded under the Trauma Recovery Demonstration Grant program, six grantees funded under the School Based Mental Health Services Grant program, school and district administrators, institutions of higher education, teachers, support staff at schools, communities and families, and students.
- Seeking to improve schools' school climate and 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 includes developing resources and hosting events.
- Promoting and managing the U.S. Department of Education School Climate Surveys (EDSCLS) maintenance and help desk hotline.
