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. COMING SOON: In an effort to continue providing EOP Development training during this time, we will transition this live virtual training to an online training module.

EOP Development Training

The Texas Education Code (TEC) 37.108 requires districts develop and implement a multi-hazard Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). The district multi-hazard EOP provides a framework that outlines the district’s response to managing an incident. The EOP addresses prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery.

To support districts in developing a high-quality, multi-hazard EOP, the Texas School Safety Center is in the process of moving our live virtual training to an online training module that may be accessed at any time, to assist school districts, open-enrollment charter schools and community colleges through the development and evaluation of their EOP. New legislative requirements will be highlighted.

For more information about the online training module, please contact Cynthia J. Arredondo at
