From the Purpose and Summary: "The purpose of S. 111, the Luke and Alex School Safety Act of 2021 (LASSA), is to codify the Federal Clearinghouse on School Safety Best Practices (''Clearinghouse''). The Clearinghouse is designed to inform school and community officials and parents on the best practices for school safety measures, as well as available resources for implementing such measures in their schools, and specify criteria for best practices and a process for the Clearinghouse. Specifically this bill aims to create a codified structure for the Clearinghouse, which would be the primary resource of the Federal Government to identify and publish the best practices and recommendations for school safety for use by State and local educational agencies, institutions of higher education, State and local law enforcement agencies, health professionals, and the general public. The bill also requires the Federal agencies involved in the development of the Clearinghouse--the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Department of Justice (DOJ), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Department of Education (Education)--to notify their state counterparts of the Clearinghouse and to identify available Federal and state grant programs for implementing Clearinghouse best practices."
