Texas Conservative Lobbyist Update: TEA, Texas School Safety Center partner for Oct. 20-26 Safe Schools Week
The TEA (Texas Education Agency) and the TxSSC (Texas School Safety Center) recently renewed their annual partnership for the new 2013 Texas Safe Schools Week. This week falls on Oct. 20 – 26. TEA and TxSSC both work hard to ensure that all public schools are places where all attending are safe and cared for. “Every student in Texas deserves an effective and safe learning environment,” said Commissioner of Education Michael Williams.
“Safe Schools Week offers an opportunity for everyone in education to reflect on the plans and policies in place, which can help assure our campuses are prepared and safe.”
Gov. Rick Perry has declared October 20 to the 26th as “Safe Schools Week” as part of a movement to protect teachers, students, and administrators. Many representatives and members of the TEA and TxSCC are pushing for more frequent and varied safety/emergency drills.
