Key points:

More than half of teachers and parents are more worried about school safety than in previous years, according to the 2023 K-12 School Safety Report from Motorola Solutions, which captured sentiments from 1,000 K-12 parents and 1,000 K-12 educators across the United States.

The research reveals the most pressing concerns for those closest to school safety and highlights their perceptions about emergency preparedness plans, communication practices, school safety technologies, and training for teachers and students.

The new data shows that 67 percent of both parents and teachers are much more concerned about school safety now than they were five years ago, even as 73 percent of parents and 80 percent of teachers are confident that their school’s emergency response plans are effective.
