OverviewSSC Seal

In the Spring of 2019, the Utah State Legislature passed House Bill (H.B.) 120: Student and School Safety Assessment. The establishment of H.B. 120 formed the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) School Safety Center (SSC), a group of professionals from USBE, the Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS), the Utah Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health (DSAMH), and the University of Utah SafeUT. The SSC works together to strengthen school safety efforts through technical assistance, developing resources, training, and materials for school safety.

Our Mission

Ensure the physical and emotional safety of each student through technical support, training, and resources.
