Tips for Increasing School Safety Beyond the Built Environment

A big focus of our K-12 studio involves partnering with school administrators to make our schools safer. In addition to projects, we’ve produced podcast episodes about safer schools and interviewed experts on the topic.

Our K-12 Practice Leader, Ben Thompson, recently published an article for District Administration on why designing a safe school requires more than just built solutions. In the article, Thompson covers:

  • Physical security measures
  • Entry points
  • Interior campus security
  • Prevention partnerships
  • Social programs
