PASS Leadership

The Partner Alliance for Safer Schools (PASS) is led by a multidisciplinary team of volunteers, supported by the PASS Advisory Council representing partners from the public and private sectors. PASS leadership is tasked with:

  • Building relationships across the education, public safety and industry communities in support of the PASS mission
  • Ensuring the PASS Safety and Security Guidelines for K-12 Schools and related tools and resources are up to date and informed by appropriate subject matter expertise and reflect best practices specific to K-12 environments
  • Educating stakeholders concerning PASS resources through speaking engagements, written communications, organizational partnerships and other mechanisms
