approved k-12 security vulnerability assessments

A comprehensive school security assessment should inform and guide the creation or revision of school safety plans, and ensures that plans and subsequent actions align to five critical hazard areas: Prevention, Protection, Mitigation, Response, and Recovery. It is often the first step in developing a comprehensive security plan and should be the first step before selecting security solutions. Conducting a targeted attack risk assessment can help schools understand their current situation, prioritize their future actions, identify and compare options, and effectively allocate resources.  
NSSPA approved security vulnerability assessments ensure schools implement realistic and effective solutions based on the history of school shootings and industry best practices, with the oversight of subject matter experts.
