School Safety Center (SSC)


SSC 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 School Safety Center (SSC), a group of professionals from the Utah State Board of Education (USBE), the Utah Department of Public Safety (DPS), the Utah Office of Substance Use and Mental Health (OSUMH), and SafeUT at the Huntsman Mental Health Institute. The School Safety Center works together to strengthen school safety efforts through technical assistance, developing resources, training, and materials for school safety.
