Texas School Safety Center: Response to School Shooting in Santa Fe, Texas

A safe learning environment is essential for all students in all grade levels. Without it they are unable to focus on learning the skills needed for a successful education and future. Keeping schools safe allows children to look forward to being in an environment that promotes social and academic growth.

The issue of school safety has always been a priority in the education community, but in light of recent events in our country and now most recently in our state, school safety is the major issue facing local school districts, their communities, their local government as well as our federal government.

ESC Region 6 is here to support in any way to help your school district become a safer place for everyone. Our web-site was created to help aide districts in all areas of safety. Browse the safety topics and information and please do not hesitate to contact us for any type of assistance.

School Safety

Before students can learn academically at school, they need to feel safe. Students not only need to feel safe but need to be in facilities that are safe and secure and be taught by teachers and administrators who have instructional knowledge in handling behavior problems at school to preserve dignity, respect, and individual rights of students and staff.

Region 6 provides different safety areas to help school districts in keeping students safe. They are:

  • Safety School Audits
  • Behavior/Discipline Management
  • Drivers Safety (Safety Education and Training)
  • Bus Safety (Safety Education and Training)
  • Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support

Technical assistance as well as professional development opportunities are available.
