Facility Auditing

Safe Schools Plan and Facility Auditing with HCDE

Texas Education Code Chapter 37.108 requires all public schools to conduct safety audits of all their facilities every three years and report the results to the Texas Schools Safety Center and to their local district boards of education.    The Center provides these safety audit services to school districts to help them comply with this legal mandate by conducting five critical area audits: intruder, exterior, interior, emergency planning policy review and National Incident Management System (NIMS) alignment assessment.  Upon completion of the safety audit, a district will receive an executive summary and access to individual site reports through the web based state of the art system called ERIP (Emergency Information Portal).
