Safety and Security

New safety measures were implemented for the 2022-23 school year to protect our staff and students. Their safety and security are critical to their well-being and academic success. Below are some of the new safety measures:

In August, the school board approved funding for an additional School Resource Officer to help provide essential coverage throughout the district. We also added a Safety Administrator to oversee all aspects of safety and ensure our buildings are secure and our safety processes are consistent across the district.

Our Technology Department installed additional cameras, and new door locks at campuses. We also increased security in our vestibule areas at each campus, where visitors must sign in through a computer before entering the front office.

We completed a comprehensive audit of all campus exterior doors in July and August. We are making adjustments to exterior doors based on the exterior door audit. We will also do routine sweeps of all exterior doors to ensure they are safe and secure and not being propped open for any reason.

The district requires all classroom doors be locked.

All district employees and students will be required to wear IDs.

Jarrell ISD offers a "tip line" through our Anonymous Alerts system. The alert system is available to students, parents, families, community members, and staff. You can download the app or log onto our website to report to the district issues related to bullying/cyberbullying, drugs, suicidal concerns, weapons, a teacher-student relationship, and more. All reports are anonymous.

Each school will conduct safety drills throughout the year to practice responding to various scenarios. Those drills include fire drills, evacuation, lockdown, and sheltering in place.

In addition, the district utilizes the Standard Response Protocol (SRP), created by the I Love U Guys Foundation.

This is not an exhaustive list of the measures and practices we have at Jarrell ISD, but are some highlights. We remain 100% committed to the safety and security of our students and staff.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your campus or our Safety Administrator, Billy Madden, at [email protected].
