Welcome to the Office of School Safety!

The Office of School Safety is committed to fostering safe, secure and supportive learning environments for Philadelphia public schools. We use research and data to make informed decisions that are centered on impartiality, restorative practices and student equity. Our Safety Officers participate in comprehensive training programs that include diversity and inclusion, trauma-sensitive care, adolescent development and restorative strategies.

We believe students can reach their full potential in a positive and nurturing atmosphere. Our commitment to safety supports the School District and Board of Education’s mission to deliver an excellent public school education for all students.
