In 2019, the Utah State Legislature created the School Safety Data Analyst position, funded through House Bill (H.B.) 120 Student and School Safety Assessment, to collect and analyze multiple data elements for school safety. The School Safety Data page was recently added to the website to create transparency and ease of access to the data that is used to inform policy and guidelines that keep our students, teachers, school staff, and administrators safe.
The Utah State Board of Education (USBE), in accordance with R277-623-3, created the School Climate Survey to measure and assess stakeholder perceptions of school environments throughout Utah in all K-12 public schools. The survey will be administered by Local Education Agencies (LEAs) between March 13 and May 5, 2023. The student survey is administered in the classroom by a teacher or aide. Respondent groups include students (grouped by grades), administrators, teachers, staff, parents, and School Resource Officers (SROs).

The SafeUT application operates 24/7 and allows individuals in crisis to connect instantly with a masters-level counselor through chat or phone call. An individual can also submit a tip through the SafeUT application if they are concerned about another student or a possible threat to their school. The SafeUT program is funded through the Utah State Legislature, and the services are provided by the Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI) at the University of Utah.
The SafeUT annual report contains data collected through July 1-June 30. Data points include: enrollment numbers of SafeUT, the total number of chats and tips received, including further categorical breakdowns, the number of life-saving interventions, research initiatives, and additional information on SafeUT National Guard (SafeUTNG) and SafeUT Frontline, SafeUT expansion applications.
