Office of Safety & Security
The Midlothian Independent School District places the safety and security of your children as a top priority. In keeping to that philosophy, we have implemented an Office of Safety and Security to coordinate our campus and district-wide efforts. The Office of Safety and Security oversees the District Safety Team, ACT (After Crisis Team), and ERT (Emergency Response Team). The department partners with campuses, administration and local emergency responders to prepare for crisis situations. The Office of Safety and Security depends on each partner to assist in this effort. We consider every teacher, principal, custodian, administrator, bus driver, crossing guard, parent and guardian as a key member of our district safety and security team.
MISD has developed safety and security protocols that are aligned with nationally accepted best practices. We have fully trained district and campus safety and response teams, comprised of our administrators, counselors, fire/ems personnel, nurses, parents, physiologist, police, students, and teachers. Safety teams lead our district in planning and oversight of our basic safety and security structure. The response teams are prepared to act should a critical incident occur requiring the activation of any of our emergency protocols.
Midlothian ISD is taking great effort to make our schools safe, but it takes our entire community to continue providing the nurturing and secure learning environment necessary for students to reach their highest potential. Please take your responsibility seriously and if you see something say something.
Working together, we can make our campuses and district facilities the safest they can be.
