COVID-19 Cancellation Notice
We are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 to determine how best we can continue serving schools throughout Texas. UPDATE: 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 school safety training during this time, we are transitioning many of our in-person trainings to an online format beginning in May 2020. We will post registration details about these online trainings on our Events page as they become available.
