Trainings

We collaborate with school safety leaders, institutions, and community members to develop training in the latest school safety programs and best practices.

Training opportunities cover a wide range of topic areas and are available in multiple formats, including webinars, self-paced courses, peer-to-peer learning communities, toolkits, and more.

Resources

We have created and curated a number of resources to assist you in developing, implementing, and learning about school safety programs.

Looking for toolkits on trauma-informed programs? Information to help apply for and manage your school safety grant? Clearinghouses to explore the ecosystem of school safety programs?

We have a collection of these and more to help you along your school safety journey.

Technical Assistance

NCSS offers personalized technical assistance to STOP grantees wherever they are in the lifespan of their grant.

You can connect with your Technical Assistance Specialist by scheduling a one-on-one meeting, joining your fellow grantees during quarterly NCSS STOP Training and Technical Assistance Meetings, or in our monthly TA Grantee Hours.
