Learn the Terminology

They are number one in our eyes too

School Safety: 
They are #1 in our Eyes, Too!

The Clear Creek Independent School District is committed to ensuring each child is physically and emotionally secure in our schools.  

To address the complexities of school security, your school district will be implementing the following protocols, procedures, and outreach activities so that children, educators, parents, and the community feel empowered to positively impact their local schools.

What Can You Do? Get Familiar with the Terminology

STUDENT SAFETY - A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the classroom response to an incident at school. Weather events, fire, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by students, teachers, staff and administration.

SRP -  Our school is expanding the safety program to include the Standard Response Protocol - Extended (SRPx). The SRPx is based on these five actions. Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate, Shelter and Hold. In the event of an emergency, the action and appropriate direction will be called on the PA.
