SDA is committed to delivering school facilities which are safe and secure. All SDA school facilities are required to be designed and constructed in accordance with the NJ Department of Community Affairs’ Best Practices Standards for Schools Under Construction or Being Planned for Construction. SDA has also implemented design standards to augment the DCA Best Practices, including standards for intrusion detection, video surveillance, and access control systems, as well as security glazing requirements to better address intrusion situations. SDA continues to monitor ongoing dialogue and the development of updates to standards for school facility safety and security.
