The Texas Education Agency (TEA) and Texas School Safety Center (TXSSC) have directed schools to complete specific security initiatives before the fall semester. The TEA also extended the end date of the School Safety and Security Grant to June 15, 2023.
Visit the TEA website to learn more about your summer security-related responsiblities.
The School Safety and Security Grant authorizes the TEA to distribute $100,000,000 to Texas public schools for additional safety and security equipment. Examples include exterior doors with push bars, bullet-resistant glass or film for school entrances, and campus-wide active shooter alarm systems.
Get more information about the security grant and what the extension means for your district.
The TXSSC put together a list of resources to help districts comply. Fund members with Auto, Liability, Property, or Workers' Compensation coverage benefit from additional support and training.
