School Safety: K-12 and Higher Ed

Hurricane Harvey Resources for Texas Schools

Hurricane Harvey swept our Texas coast, and as a result, affected 58 counties in the state. Consequently, the daily operations of many districts and schools were negatively impacted as a result of the storm. In order to help districts, school personnel, and students begin the recovery process, the Texas School Safety Center is compiling a list of trusted organizations and timely resources to assist our schools and communities during this difficult phase.
