Welcome to Safe and Healthy Schools


The Utah State Board of Education (USBE), in coordination with stakeholders, has made Safe and Healthy Schools a board priority. The Utah School Safety Framework includes 9 Conditions that schools may follow to create comprehensive safe and healthy school policies, plans, protocols, and partnerships. The information included in this website has been a result of intensive collaboration with multiple state agencies, research from national organizations, and input from Utah educators, parents, and students.
