    Global Grid for Learning


    The Safer Schools in America Impact Initiative, led by Global Grid for Learning (GG4L) and McREL, a Regional Educational Laboratory (REL), is an initiative developed by a national panel of experts to facilitate a positive school climate and incorporate conditions related to engagement, environment, and safety, with considerations for emotional and physical safety, anti-bullying, anti-substance abuse, emergency readiness, school building design, human variables as well as threats resulting from technology vulnerabilities.


    History of Funding

    85 US schools have been selected for the initial phase of the Grant, which was closed on January 30, 2019.

    Additional Information

    GG4L & McREL have adopted the national Student Support and Academic Enrichment (SSAE) framework from Title IV- Part A and will jointly operate this initiative. The SSAE program, as part of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), stresses that all students should feel safe and supported as a condition for learning. Evidence-informed decision making is essential for those charged with school safety and student wellness. In line with ESSA requirements, the Safer Schools in America impact initiative will use independent measures of efficacy under an institutional quality research framework to establish best practices that can be shared nationally. The data will be aggregated, anonymized and analyzed by McREL and GG4L and provided in quarterly and annual reports to all stakeholders. Commercial sponsors will be limited to a 5% participation in this initiative.

    Protecting children with safer school environments requires an expansive range of activities that are supported by all stakeholders, and which can now be implemented and comprehensively measured through new EdTech solutions, creating a secure grid in and around schools academic, social, and physical environments.
