The Commerce ISD Departments of HEALTH SERVICES, POLICE, and FAMILY SERVICES work closely together to help promote safety, wellness, and well-being for our students and their families, in and out of school.

School Safety

While not every crisis or emergency can be predicted, safety and security are of the utmost importance at Commerce ISD. Our District relies on numerous measures and protocols to promote security, and ensure the safest possible environment in our schools.

Standard Response Protocol

If an emergency occurs at one of our campuses or buildings, there is often not much time to warn students, staff and visitors about what is happening and what to do. For this reason, Commerce ISD has implemented the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) at all of its campuses and facilities.

The SRP is not based on individual scenarios, but rather teaches a predictable series of actions to respond to any given scenario.  District administrators, staff and students are trained in the SRP through frequent drills.

Read more about the SRP here.
