Make Our Schools Safe is a 501(c)(3) national non-profit organization dedicated to protecting students and teachers at school. Our mission is to improve the safety of schools, research and test best practices, as well as implement those protocols by creating model schools, beginning in South Florida and spreading nationwide.
As we ramp up, we will provide Dream Team Club tool kits, empowering others to collaborate with local government to impact school safety — it’s literally life or death-level important that our administrators consider school safety as essential as they do the curriculum.
Our foundation collaborates with high-level security advisors to offer survival information for protection in emergencies. We are focused on bringing these skills to schools so teachers feel confident to protect their students and themselves. Code-red training must be as intrinsic a part of schooling as fire drills.
Born out of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre on Valentine’s Day 2018, when our founders lost their beautiful 14 year-old daughter, Alyssa Alhadeff, we are here to strengthen the weaknesses in school security. Parkland’s shooting did not have to happen. We are here to take action, protecting schools so it never happens again. With passion and persistence, it can be done. Children should thrive in classrooms, not fear for their lives. The time has come to make schools safe!
