Gatekeeper Award

Each year we choose a staff at a school or school district and honors them with our annual Gatekeeper Award for school safety in recognition of their contributions to school safety. We also recognize individual achievements in school safety and safe school culture and climate.

The selection process includes a review of projects and case studies from schools and school districts, as well as individual contributions to school safety that show our principles of training are put to work in actual circumstances. Honorees are recognized at the annual International School Safety Institute conference .
