School Security Assessment

State law mandates that every school in the district, including authorized charter schools, complete a school security assessment utilizing the updated Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security Physical Security Tool. As a result of the COVID-19 emergency, security assessments will need to be conducted at a yet-to-be-determined time during the 2020-21 school year. Results from the district’s most recent school security assessments, in addition to available updated data, should be used for setting priorities. A district level summary of the 2019-20 school security assessments conducted in your districts will be made available.

Below is a support document for the school security assessment process. For further information contact Brenna Morse at
