Safe Schools Committee


Pursuant to Ark. Code Ann. § 6-15-1301, the Safe Schools Committee is charged with developing model policies and procedures that may ensure a safe and productive learning environment for students and school employees for recommendations to school districts.

The Safe Schools Committee will review the codes and rules regarding emergency plans and drills, firearms, fire safety, and more.

(NOTE: On June 10, 2022, Gov. Asa Hutchinson reconvened the Arkansas School Safety Commission.  For information on the work of the Commission, please visit the School Safety main page.)
