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.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has a new website addressing injury, violence, and safety: Safe Schools
The National Organization for Youth Safety (NOYS) has updated their website to address bullying and driving safety: Bullying and driving safety
Abduction and Assault Support for Students - Kidnapping Escape Safety Tips
Campus Safety Drill Calendar
Drill Type Fall 2017 Spring 2018 Evacuation September May Lockdown October January Severe Weather November February Shelter-in-Place December March
The calendar is a recommendation and lists only the minimum number of drills required in YISD. Principals may request that additional drills be operated for their campus. The Texas Fire Marshal requires that every public K-12 school conduct a fire drill every month from September - May.
