​Data Reports

The Safe Schools Online Application serves as a data collection vehicle, content distribution, and report repository for the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Office for Safe Schools.  Safe Schools, Student Assistance Program (SAP), and Alternative Education for Disruptive Youth (AEDY) data is collected annually and aggregated into an assortment of public and private reports.

The application provides public access to the Annual School Safety Reports collected on the Pennsylvania Management System (PIMS). Visit the Safe Schools Online Report.

School Safety Task Force Report - 2018

In March 2018, Governor Tom Wolf and Auditor General Eugene DePasquale announced the creation of Pennsylvania’s School Safety Task Force to identify strategies to improve school safety, security, and preparedness. During six regional listening sessions held from April through June 2018, Task Force members heard from government officials, statewide education organizations, law enforcement officials, community leaders, school officials, teachers, parents, and students.

The School Safety Task Force Report (PDF) summarizes feedback shared at regional listening sessions and through an online survey, and offers recommendations to improve school safety through a variety of actions.
