    The YISD Safe Schools Program is a community-wide effort to ensure pupils, parents, personnel and partners who visit our schools and District facilities are safe and secure. The program is built on the five pillars of Emergency Management: Mitigation, Protection, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.
