Governor Greg Abbott today released a School Safety Action Plan Summary, which details actions taken over the summer by school districts across Texas to improve and expand school safety measures. The actions taken by these school districts follow the Governor’s call to adopt and implement multidisciplinary school safety strategies outlined in his School and Firearm Safety Action Plan released earlier this year.
“Elected leaders, community members, students, teachers, parents and everyday Texans all share the common goal of making schools a safe place for our children,” said Governor Abbott. “Our goal is being realized as school districts across the state continue to put immediate and long term plans aimed at prevention and protection in place. While progress is being made, there is still much work to be done and I encourage everyone in Texas to continue the discussion surrounding school safety to ensure that we put in place measures that will benefit the safety and well-being of our state’s greatest resource – our children.”
As Governor Abbott and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) continue to work with school districts to develop long-term safety plans, the immediate measures taken over the summer are directed at keeping Texas students safe this school year.
