National Infrastructure Protection Plan: Education Facilities Subsector   [open pdf - 1MB]

"Education Facilities is a Subsector of the Government Facilities Sector, one of 18 critical infrastructure sectors established under the authority of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7 (HSPD-7). Each sector is managed by a Sector-Specific Agency (SSA) that provides sector-level performance feedback to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to enable assessment of national, cross-sector critical infrastructure protection and resilience programs. In accordance with the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP), each SSA is responsible for developing and implementing a Sector-Specific Plan (SSP), in collaboration with public and private sector partners, and for encouraging the development of appropriate information-sharing and analysis mechanisms. DHS has recognized the Department of Education's (ED) Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools (OSDFS) as the SSA for the Education Facilities Subsector (EFS). In this role, EFS coordinates with Federal and non-Federal partners to help address risk management and enhance resilience for the subsector."
