COVID-19 Cancellation Notice

Texas is a large state and we are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19. Should an ESC or host decide to close we will notify our participants on the cancellation via the e-mail they used to sign-up for the training. UPDATE: With increased news reports about the growing number of cases nationally of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) we have decided to cancel all trainings effective immediately until May 1, 2020.

School Safety and Security Audit Training

To support districts in meeting the safety and security audit requirements of Texas Education Code 37.108, the TxSSC has developed a one-day training that reviews and demonstrates safety and security audit procedures. New legislative mandates will be covered and addressed in this training. Participants will have an opportunity, in table-group audit teams, to identify safety and security issues of Texas schools and practice the processes of conducting a school safety and security audit.

This training will require two steps prior to registration:

  1. Take the online "School Safety and Security Audits" course through the School Safety Learning Portal: This course will introduce key concepts of a safety and security audit and is a prerequisite to register for this training.

    School Safety and Security Audits Online Course
  2. Register for and attend an in-person School Safety and Security Audit Training: After successfully completing the online course, each participant will be given a unique code that will enable them to register for the in-person course.
  3. *To register for the Safety and Security Audit Training, individuals must follow the steps noted above.

This training is open to public ISDs, open enrollment charter schools, junior colleges, school-based law enforcement, and state agencies that support schools. Due to limited seating, vendors and contractors are not permitted to register or attend the training.

**Please note, an EOP Development Training will take place the day before. If interested in attending, you must register separately for the training.
