AISNE envisions a strong, inclusive, collaborative community of independent schools that - with the help of AISNE and each other - has the information, resources, and strategies it needs to thrive in a continuously changing educational landscape.
At AISNE, we proudly provide forums for our schools to connect and support one another. With school safety squarely in the front of our nation's current agenda, AISNE seeks to be a resource for our schools, as we all navigate what are in many cases, unchartered waters.
This space is a place to find school safety resources and activism opportunities recently shared across our network of AISNE member schools. We are maintaining it as a current resource for any school seeking ideas, support and collaboration.
