School Safety

Having safe schools is one of our region's highest priorities. We recognize that without a safe and orderly academic environment, teachers and students cannot thrive.

Region 7 Districts have the opportunity to join the School Safety Co-op which includes:

  • Provide professional development opportunities through face-to-face, webinars, and online courses to school safety and security. Training includes but is not limited to the following:

    • Emergency Management
    • Behavioral Threat Assessment
    • Dating Violence
    • Standard Response Protocol-Standard Reunification Method
    • Legislative updates
  • Provide training to the mandatory safety and security committee(s).
  • Provide on-site guidance through the security/safety audit process
  • Provide technical assistance to the Safe and Supportive School Program Team/Behavior Threat Assessment Teams documentation.
  • Provide technical assistance in reviewing and updating the Emergency Operation Plans before submission to the Texas School Safety Center.
  • Provide an online safety survey.
  • Provide on-site active attacker response training upon request.
  • Provide unlimited support during a crisis or emergency


For Region 7 Education Service Center, each member district shall:

  • Designate a School Safety contact and provide their name, email, and phone number to Region 7 ESC.
  • Designate and share contact information for Safety and Security Committee members and Safe and Supportive School Program Team/Behavior Threat Assessment Team members. This will allow committee/team members to receive communication, such as program requirements, updates, and deadlines.
