School Safety and Security Overview
In an effort to provide a safe and secure environment for all students, staff, and campus visitors, Kennedale ISD has implemented policies that focus on campus safety. KISD has also implemented multiple safety tools such as building camera systems, access control, fire and burglar alarm systems, a mass communication system.
KISD has had a comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) in place for several years and that plan is updated annually. This plan prepares us for action and establishes teams, chains of command, and specific steps to take. Both campus staff and students are trained and drilled throughout the school year on a variety of potential emergency situations. Each school campus along with support sites have detailed emergency operation plans which provide directions on how emergency events will be handled. Also, Kennedale ISD works closely with all local First Responders through planning and conducting emergency drills so all are prepared if an event occurs.
