Making Texas Schools Safer For Students And Teachers

The Office of Governor Greg Abbott today released a web video highlighting the signing of legislation to enhance school safety and expand access to mental health resources to make Texas schools safer and more secure for students and teachers. 

“Last spring, ten people were killed in a tragic shooting at Santa Fe High School, and I vowed that the state of Texas would do everything in its power to prevent a tragedy like this from occurring again,” said Governor Abbott.

“As the result of roundtables that were held in the aftermath, I made school safety an emergency item for the 86th Legislative Session, and because of the hard work of members in both chambers, as well as the many stakeholders, we accomplished this important task, and I am proud to sign legislation that makes schools safer for our students and teachers.”
