Safety & Security Information

Pearland ISD is committed to the safety and security of all students, staff and visitors. A comprehensive Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is in place and reviewed annually. Campuses practice various emergency drills such as fire drills, severe weather drills and intruder drills throughout the school year to prepare students and staff for an emergency. All campus employees and administration have received Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) training led by the Pearland Police Department.

In the event of a serious incident or threat, our first priority is to ensure our students and staff are safe; followed by informing/communicating with parents or media. However, we will share information we have available as we are able through Skyward email, parent calls or text messages, district social media and the website.

Pearland ISD has a wonderful working relationship with the Pearland Police Department and employs School Resource Officers (SROs) at all junior high and high school campuses.

Although many security procedures are confidential to ensure the safety of our students and staff, we can share a few proactive measures that are in place.

  • Security vestibules at the entrance of all campuses
  • Electronic door monitoring for all campus exterior doors
  • Interior locks on all classroom doors
  • Additional/upgraded security cameras
  • Perimeter fencing at elementary schools
  • CRASE training for all staff
  • Weekly door audits

One of the most important safety measures we as a District and community can take is being vigilant and reporting any suspicious behaviors or issues of potential concern. We encourage the reporting of suspected dangers to the appropriate authorities.
