In the United States, the placement and design of School Signs are mostly governed by a combination of local, state, and federal laws and regulations. They vary depending on specific location and jurisdiction, as there is no nationwide standard for School Signs. Here are some aspects to consider:
Federal Regulations: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) provides guidelines and standards for traffic control devices, including signs, through the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). School Signs located near roadways are subject to compliance with MUTCD standards to ensure consistency and safety.
Local Zoning Laws: Most cities and municipalities have zoning regulations that dictate the size, location, and design of signs within their boundaries.
State Laws: Some states have specific laws or guidelines concerning the safety of students and drivers such as the use of flashing lights, electronic message boards, or speed limits in school zones.
Schools and administrators should consult with local authorities or legal professionals to ensure compliance with all applicable rules when planning to put up School Signs.

Most School Signs are suitable for both, indoors and outdoors, but each material has a different outdoor life. Aluminum signs come with an outdoor warranty of 7 to 12 years. 3M Reflective Aluminum Signs (HIP) last at least for 7 years outside. If greater durability is required, go for Diamond Grade reflectivity (12 years), Engineer Grade, or High Intensity (10 years). Plastic signs are better suited indoors and offer durability of 1 to 2 years outdoors.
Bilingual signs with English and Spanish text are available in many sign categories like Safe School Zone, No Cell Phones, No Weapons in School, School Ground Rules, Drop Off & Pick Up, and School Bus amongst others. We also have signs only in Spanish.

If you’re looking for ADA compliance, try Braille School Signs. For Braille signs, we only use Grade II Braille specified in ADA 28 CFR Part 36 regulations. Our TactileTouch™ range of signs is ADA-compliant. Along with Braille these signs also feature raised letters and pictograms (by 1/32”).
The Gun-Free School Zones Act (GFSZA) prohibits any person from knowingly possessing a gun in a “school zone.” The law applies to public, private, and parochial elementary schools and high schools, and to non-private property within 1000 feet of them. The law was introduced by Congress and encouraged each state receiving federal funds for education to follow suit and introduce their own laws, now known as zero tolerance laws.
Section 1702(b)(5) of Pub. L. 101-647 states: "Federal, State, and local authorities are encouraged to cause signs to be posted around school zones giving warning of prohibition of the possession of firearms in a school zone." It is always a good practice to display No Guns Signs to inform visitors and employees of the prohibition.
We still advise you to check the relevant state and local laws and school district policies to understand the specific requirements regarding No Guns Signs in schools. Laws and regulations can change over time, so it's essential to consult up-to-date sources for the most accurate information.
