COVID-19 Cancellation Notice
We are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 to determine how best we can continue serving schools throughout Texas. With the growing number of cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) nationally, we have canceled all currently scheduled in-person trainings until further notice. AVAILABLE NOW: In an effort to continue providing Charter School Safety Requirements training during this time, we have transitioned this in-person training to a virtual format. See the updated information below on how to register for one of these virtual trainings.
This one-day training will serve as an introduction to what open-enrollment charter schools need to know regarding Texas legislative requirements that impact school safety and security. Topics that will be covered include: emergency operation planning, assembling a school safety and security committee, conducting a safety and security audit, assembling a behavioral threat assessment team and other safety requirements that are now new for charter schools. This training will include a review of Texas School Safety Center resources and allotted time for questions and answers.
This training is open to Texas open-enrollment charter schools, school-based law enforcement, and state agencies that support charter schools. Due to limited seating, vendors and contractors are not permitted to register or attend the training.
