Organizational Structure

Origin & Functions




The Maryland Center for School Safety was established as an independent unit of State government by the General Assembly in July 2013 (Chapter 372, Acts of 2013). In June 2018, it was reformed as an independent unit within the State Department of Education (Chapter 30, Acts of 2018).

To provide a coordinated and comprehensive policy for school safety in Maryland, the Center collaborates with local school systems, law enforcement agencies, State and local government, community organizations, parents, and other groups. With those partners, the Center disseminates information on best practices, programs, and resources; provides technical assistance and training; collects, analyzes, and integrates Statewide data; and promotes interagency efforts to ensure safe schools.

The Center's Executive Director is appointed by the School Safety Subcabinet (Code Education Article, secs. 7-1501 through 7-1505).
