Boerne ISD's Proactive Measures and Standard Response Protocols

Proactive Measures and Standards Response Protocols
Posted on 02/28/2018

In light of the Valentines Day tragedy that took place in Florida, Boerne ISD extends our condolences to all impacted by the events at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. 

Boerne ISD has many proactive measures and standard response protocols in place regarding student and staff safety as part of the district’s Emergency Operations Planning.  

 In partnership with Boerne, Fair Oaks Ranch, and Kendall County first responders, BISD follows guidelines from the Texas State School Safety Center in determining safety procedures and protocols. The district has an emergency plan in place which includes campus and district emergency response teams.

We conduct a variety of safety and emergency response meetings and we have regularly scheduled drills at the campus and district levels. Staff and administration actively monitor campuses, and risk assessment is an ongoing process as BISD has adopted use of school based Incident Management/Command Systems (ICS) under the National Incident Management System (NIMS) that is both mandated and used throughout all levels of Federal, State, and Local governments and agencies. 

Parents/guardians play a key role in the safety and security of our students and in preventing tragedies. We encourage parents/guardians to have open communication with their children, including any concerns regarding social media, and to share any concerns with campus personnel. We also ask parents to ensure students understand that even joking about school violence leads to an immediate and swift investigation of the threat when campus and/or district leaders become aware of such conversations.

 Across the nation, schools are working with their communities to provide safe learning environments. BISD continues to value the parent and community partnerships in making our schools safe for students and staff. Safety is our top priority.
