Emergency Operation Meeting

BROADDUS INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT P.O. Box 58.215 Buchanan. Broaddus, Texas 75929. Phone: 936.872.3041 - Fax: 936.872.3699 Parents and Community, On October 8, 2019, BISD hosted an Emergency Operation meeting to review Emergency Operations Plans which are a requirement of federal and state laws. The attendees at the meeting were local law enforcement, county officials, EMT, Fire Department, the mayor, SAISD, BISD administration, and other community members. There were several discussions regarding student safety, response time, and budgets to help ensure safety in each school district and to have procedures put in place to resolve an incident after it occurs. There were different concerns, for BISD, that were brought up during the meeting including: 1. the multiple access points of BISD, 2. limited resources available to help before, during, or after a crisis, 3. and response time. The action plan to resolve the issues was to procure federal safety funds from the county to install gates throughout the district to help maintain order before, during, and/or after an incident. With the help of all emergency agencies working together in the county to help improve safety for the students of Broaddus ISD, we were able to accomplish a safer environment for our students. Also, after multiple discussions with the board of trustees and superintendent, the board approved to establish a police department in the district. This means, that this coming school year and years to come, BISD will have a police officer in the district. The district has recently opened this position for applicants. Broaddus ISD is and will continue to improve our school and our community by uniting together to create a place that we call HOME. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer for any of our community Outreach committees, please feel free to contact the school at 936.872.3041. Sincerely yours, Lucas Holloway BISD Superintendent "A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE"
