Galena Park ISD Continues Commitment to Safe and Secure Schools

Houston, Texas: As part of Galena Park ISD’s continued focus on safety, Galena Park ISD has been a member of the Center for Safe and Secure Schools (CSSS) for the past twenty-five years. The Center is a collaboration of over 25 local school districts, led by the Harris County Department of Education and was founded in 1999 to advance safe and secure environments for learning and teaching.  The Center assists in emergency management planning and operations, training and certification programs, and establishing criteria for standards and best practices in safety and security.

The Center also represents local school districts in the Harris County Emergency Operations Center during times of emergency.  The CSSS at the Harris County Department of Education continually strives to provide valuable information and resources related to school safety, violence prevention and positive outcomes for students, teachers and communities.  Galena Park ISD has benefited from the many trainings and seminars offered through the Center and has gained valuable equipment as a result of grants obtained by the Center.

“The Center brings together the leading school safety professionals in Harris County to provide a forum which focuses on school safety. Over the past 25 years, the climate and culture of Harris County has changed, but the effort to continually improve the safety of our schools and students has remained at the forefront of GPISD and the CSSS,” said Bryan Clements, GPISD Police Chief.
