Shallowater ISD is committed to the safety and security of all students, staff, and visitors. The district police officers, director of safety, and SISD administration work in cooperation with area first responders in the responsibility of the following areas:

  • Campus safety audits
  • Liaison and coordination with other emergency response agencies
  • Coordination of all criminal investigations
  • Video surveillance
  • Safety and security training
  • Canine dogs

A school crisis can take a number of different forms including environmental events, such as a chemical spill or gas leak; a weather emergency such as a tornado; or dangerous activity happening near the school. The nature of a school crisis dictates whether school administrators will put in place a hold, shelter, lockdown, secure, evacuate, or any combination of these protocols, as a means to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and staff.
