Texas School Safety Center
The issue of school safety is an expansive topic that includes multiple areas of concern, and one that affects the whole community. There are a number of effective ways for schools to improve safety and security of their students, staff, and facilities. TSSC recommends three proven areas schools should focus on to further their school safety efforts; including acquiring specialized training, utilizing customized resources, and allowing for youth involvement. The Texas School Safety Center offers resources and services to support all three of these areas which will aid in making school safety a priority.
"Safe Schools Week reminds us all to reflect on the plans and policies in place and update them as needed so that our campuses are prepared and safe in every potential situation," said Commissioner of Education Mike Morath. "We must provide every student in Texas an effective and safe learning environment."
