Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton released an advisory clarifying the requirements under state law for school districts to prepare for potential threats to student safety. State law now requires school districts to provide every classroom with silent panic alarms, ensure armed security officers are present on each campus, require certain employees to complete mental-health training, facilitate law enforcement walkthroughs of school campuses, and adopt electronic notification systems to communicate with parents in the event of violent activity occurring on school grounds. Attorney General Paxton has additionally instructed the Law Enforcement Division of the Office of the Attorney General (“OAG”) to make available supplemental training resources for school security officers.
