Students learn best when they feel safe and secure. Insuring safety and security for students and staff at all school sites is the goal of this office.
The Office of Security and Emergency Management reviews and improves safety and emergency planning at all sites on a continuing basis. We supervise security staff to help prevent and solve potential problems throughout the district. We provide resources to help staff and students deal with any crisis that might occur; such as severe weather, a flu epidemic, or threatened violence. We work with other SPPS departments to help reduce bullying. We coordinate our work with various community resources such as police, fire, and emergency responders. Staff information and contacts are available here.
This site provides resources for students, parents, and staff. There are tools and tips to help students feel safer, resolve conflicts, and know what to do when an emergency arises. Parents can find a range of information to help deal with fears about violence, gangs, or other problems. Staff can access emergency planning and security training, understand emergency procedures, complete and submit drill reports, and keep up with the latest developments in safety planning.
Saint Paul Public Schools are bustling with big-city, multicultural energy. We want to help students take full advantage of everything the schools can provide in this exciting environment - and to do so safely.
