Partnership & Solutions for Safe & Healthy Students


About the Regional School Safety Center

The Regional School Safety Center (RSSC) at ESD 112 is the heart of a comprehensive, community-wide approach to school-based safety planning and behavioral and mental health support. The RSSC works in close partnership with OSPI.

By utilizing a combination of best-practices approaches to behavioral health, student threat assessment, school safety coordination, and wellness and treatment services, a more complete picture of student needs and supports can be developed. The RSSC creates unique connections across school, community, state, and local systems to provide a comprehensive approach to behavioral health and school safety.

The RSSC offers a comprehensive “one-stop-shop” solution to school safety needs. Click on a service to learn more.

About Public Health Coordination

The Regional School Safety Center works collaboratively with the AESD Network, the Department of Health, and OSPI to support statewide PreK-12 COVID-19 response and mitigation efforts, address other emerging infections and conditions of a public health significance, and coordinate recovery and post-pandemic planning efforts among local education agencies. We work closely with the School Nurse Corps, Prevention and Intervention Services Programs, and Local Health Jurisdictions.

  • Technical assistance to support COVID-19 testing related activities and other public health initiatives that lay the foundation for future public health response.
  • Support with pandemic and post-pandemic planning, response, and recovery activities, including prevention and mitigation strategies.
  • Connections to resources and best practice models.
