Safe Passage Act: District Safety & Security Best Practices

Section 1006.07(6), Florida Statutes

Violent events in schools around the country have brought increased focus on school safety. The Safe Passage Act was a product of the 2001 Legislature to ensure every child a safe passage through Florida's education system.

The goal of this legislation is for every district to have a clearly directed safety and security program that is effective and cost efficient in meeting its intended purpose. That program would include comprehensive plans and procedures that promote the safety and security of students and staff, ensure that school facilities and equipment are safe and in good condition, and address the safe transportation of students.

The links below provide information compiled to assist Florida's school districts in their safety and security self-assessments.
