About Safe School Summits

Safe School Summits bring together educators, elected officials, law enforcement and judicial personnel, social and health services providers, parents and community members to discuss and develop strategies that ensure safe, healthy school climates conducive to learning and teaching.

In partnership with Massachusetts district attorneys, the summits provide opportunities for collaboration as well as give educators the skills, tools and information to improve school environments.

The MTA supports and promotes Safe School Summits in Massachusetts with assistance from a three-year NEA Great Public Schools grant.
