The Texas School Safety Center at
Texas State University, in conjunction with the School Safety Task Force,
awarded Greenville ISD with the School Safety Certification. The certification,
valid for two years, is awarded to districts that show exceptional efforts
toward sustaining safe learning environments.
School districts were assessed on
their overall safety and security practices. These criteria were based on the
Texas Unified School Safety and Security Standards developed by the Texas
School Safety Center in collaboration with other stakeholders.
Don Jefferies, Greenville ISD
Superintendent, stated of the award, “The safety and security of our students
and staff is our number one priority. I am pleased the district was recognized
for our commitment to this initiative.”
to the procedures and advancements already in place, the GISD bond package
included almost $9 Million in safety and security improvements. When completed,
these enhancements will include controlled
vestibule entrances and card reader access systems on all campuses, surveillance system expansion and
upgrades, and fire alarm upgrades.
