Following the Uvalde tragedy, Governor Abbott and the state’s Legislative Budget Board collaborated to put into place a comprehensive financial plan for school districts to improve school safety measures with an emergency funding declaration.
The most recent initiative is the School Safety Standards Formula Grant initiative. This program has $400 million in funding available to improve hardening and safety protocol capabilities. This program was developed by the Texas Education Agency to help school districts meet the new requirements. These updated standards include a wide range of areas, such as technical advancements including notification and reunification systems, physical hardening and equipment, and mental and behavioral health programs.
