Safety and Security

Safe and Secure at ACISD

Archer City ISD, the safety of students, staff, and visitors is our top priority and we take this responsibility very seriously. Our comprehensive security program addresses prevention, intervention, student assistance, preparedness, emergency response, and building security.

ACISD routinely reviews safety and security procedures and makes adjustments when necessary. That means we’re constantly exploring new and creative ways to enhance existing security measures and adopting those policies and protocols proven to be effective in reducing risk.

It is a team effort – we rely on the continued support of students, parents and the community to keep our schools safe. We work closely with our local police and fire department to coordinate prevention and response activities, perform regular security audits and provide frequent training to all employees on security issues.
