    What is the School Safety Project?
     

    Region One ESC created the School Safety Project to help school districts address and comply with

    mandates created under Senate Bill 11, enacted on September 1, 2005. This Legislative action requires

    that all Texas school districts conduct a safety and security audit of all district facilities, every three years

    and report these findings to the District Board of Trustees.  Our next round of audits is due August 31, 2020.

    Region One ESC believes that school districts should be empowered to retain control over their own

    safety audit process and align the audit report to the priorities set by the district.  The Region One School Safety Project will not only assist school districts to comply with safety audits but will continue to support school districts by providing staff training as deemed necessary by the school district.

     
    Given today’s threats, schools must be prepared to respond in partnership with administrators, students, teachers, parents, community and local agencies. The resulting partnership is one of commitment to the overall safety of students, employees and community members.
