School Safety Procedures

    • Safety is a top priority for CISD and we will do everything in our power to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

    • Minor exits/entrances are locked throughout the school day. If you notice a door unlocked that shouldn't be, please notify the front office.
    • Secondary campuses have School Resource Officers (SRO) present throughout the day; the same officers are available as first responders at each elementary campus.
    • All campuses have video surveillance cameras on the interior and exterior of the building. 
    • CISD utilizes a emergency notification system to communicate with staff and parents through either emails or phone calls, whichever is most appropriate for the situation at hand. 
    • CISD schools have regular safety drills throughout the school year involving both students and staff. Campuses keep a log of all practice drills.
    •  The district has a Crisis Management Plan that is evaluated and updated regularly.
