K-12 School Safety and Security Audit Toolkit

2.0 K-12 Safety and Security Audit Guide

School safety is the responsibility of everyone-administrators, staff, teachers, students, parents, and the community. A safety audit provides an overview of facility safety by identifying areas that need improvement and also those that are commendable. This proactive process ensures students are achieving their ultimate learning potential in a safe and secure environment. The K-12 Safety and Security Audit Guide was developed to assist school districts in conducting safety and security audits of their facilities as required by Texas Education Code §37.108 (b). Specifically, the Texas School Safety Center designed the K-12 Safety and Security Audit Guide to assist audit teams while conducting a comprehensive review of school district facilities. The guide provides information and task specific job aids for constructing a district audit team, conducting safety and security audits, producing the written report, and protecting sensitive audit information.
