To improve security, safety, and health in Wisconsin's schools. We are committed to making schools a safer place to learn, play, teach, work and to visit.
Who we are:
WSSCA, founded in 1968, is an association of professionals dedicated to the task of improving security, safety, and health in Wisconsin schools. WSSCA is a non-profit and non-government organization that includes administrators, supervisors, teachers, building and grounds personnel, health and nursing personnel, safety coordinators, security coordinators, school resource officers, school districts as well as private/public businesses through district, corporate and student memberships.

Welcome to our 2020 President, Jeremiah Johnson!
Dear WSSCA Membership,
I am excited to serve as one of the leaders of WSSCA this year! Like most of us, my school district has been trying to strike that fine balance between safety and security and all of the other critical work that needs to be accomplished. And, in all likelihood, most of us are wearing a lot of hats to achieve that end! Each of us is at a different place in our journey to creating a strong safety program, and I am proud to be a part of an organization that continues to provide learning opportunities across the state.
As our board works together this coming year, we are looking forward to creating a strategic plan which will include actions to update our certification modules and ensure that our learning opportunities continue to be fresh and balanced. We will also continue to advocate for more statewide participation in the WSSCA program, because we know that there are many school districts that are just beginning their safety program and could use our support, networking & resources.
I am grateful for our board members, advisors and staff who give of their time, year-round, to help provide our members the most relevant resources and professional development. And as a board, we are truly thankful for all that YOU do for your schools! From Asbestos to Violence (I couldn't think of a safety word that starts with "Z"!)...you manage A LOT! Thank you for the opportunity to serve as the 2020 President. I look forward to serving alongside the WSSCA staff and board of directors and continuing WSSCA's mission... Education First, Safety Always!
2020 WSSCA President
