About NASBE and its Center for Safe and Healthy Schools

The National Association of State Boards of Education is the only national organization giving voice and adding value to the nation's state boards of education. A private, non-profit organization founded in 1958, NASBE works to strengthen state leadership in educational policymaking, promote excellence in the education of all students, advocate equality of access to educational opportunity, and assure continued citizen support for public education.

Our goal is to encourage safe, healthy and nurturing school environments for all of the nation's children and youth.
