Meet the Gomez family and their son Luis, who uses a wheelchair. The Gomez family has developed a fire escape plan to meet Luis specific needs, which includes two ways out of every room and doorways wide enough for his wheelchair. The Gomez family practices their escape plan regularly.
School Safety Partners is dedicated to creating long-term funding partnerships to support school safety best practices. We are both a community of interest and a facilitator of joint research projects, reaching out to the general public as well as stakeholders in the public, private, non-profit, and academic sectors. Our purpose is to create a space for stakeholders where true partnering can occur in order to make school safety sustainable beyond Federal funding. Since our start in January, 2008, our projects have addressed the legislative, training, compliance, funding, and public awareness sides of school safety.
