What does the School Safety and Security Committee do?

  • The Georgetown ISD School Safety and Security Committee is a working group of diverse individuals that serves all Georgetown ISD schools and stakeholders by helping create and maintain a safe and secure school climate and culture for all staff and students.

    The GISD Safety & Security Committee will periodically provide recommendations to the District's Board of Trustees and administrators regarding updating multi-hazard emergency operations plans, safety audit findings, and methods to increase law enforcement presence on all campuses. This committee is required to meet a minimum of three times each school year: fall semester, spring semester, and summer.

  • The committee, to the greatest extent practicable, must include at least: 

    1. one representatives of an office of emergency management in the district’s county or city; 
    2. one representatives of the local police department or sheriff’s office; 
    3. one representatives of the district’s police department, if applicable;
