Palombo Named Director of Safe and Secure Schools

John Palombo

Pearland Independent School District recently named John Palombo as Executive Director of Safe and Secure Schools.

Palombo is no stranger to Pearland ISD. As a campus principal for ten years, he understands that student success starts with a safe, clean, and functioning environment. His belief is that the Food Services, Transportation, Safety and Maintenance & Operations departments are the driving force providing the pathway to success.

With a passion for school safety, he hopes to impact all students in the district. “I look forward to working with campus principals and district leadership to ensure our students and staff have what they need to excel in the classroom and beyond,” Palombo said. “I am excited to build upon our safety trainings and operations to ensure everyone feels confident in emergency protocols and safety measures.”

Pearland ISD has implemented security upgrades over the years, and the district continues to enhance safety measures. “I look forward to continuing this process by engaging in ongoing facility audits and maintaining an open line of communication between schools and our department to ensure that all safety concerns are addressed.”

Palombo sees his role as not only providing physical safety for the district, but also promoting the overall wellbeing whether it be a safe bus transportation, well-balanced meals or a clean and functioning environment. “These are the foundational components that allow every campus to create a safe learning environment and continue to Build Pearland Proud.”
