On behalf of: Texas Association of School Boards 12007 Research Blvd. Austin, Texas 78759 800-580-8272 tasb.org Dear TASB members, It is with a heavy heart that I am reaching out to you today, and I know you feel the same. On your behalf, we are in touch with the Uvalde CISD school community. We have shared the following message: Uvalde CISD school community, As the President of the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), I extend deep condolences to your school community. Our TASB Board of Directors — representing every region and school board in Texas – stands with you in solidarity, heartache, and support. We are deeply pained for you after the horrific act of violence perpetrated upon Robb Elementary yesterday. Please extend our support and heartfelt sympathies to your entire community, especially your students, parents, and staff. As school leaders, I know many of us understand that action is more important than words. Uvalde CISD has shared a donation opportunity on the district website. If you feel so moved, the information is posted here: https://www.ucisd.net/. Today and in the days ahead, please continue to hold this grieving community in your hearts. Ted Beard TASB President

I am sure that all of you have heard about the tragic school shooting in Uvalde today. Our hearts are broken for that community and those families, and we pray for peace and grace from God for them. You will hear much more about it in the coming days and weeks from pundits and politicians. You will hear about what local school districts should be doing, as well as what should happen at the state and federal levels. We, at FDISD, are blessed to live in a community that cherishes our children, knows when we have strangers around, and supports our school staff in providing a safe place to learn. We are also blessed that our school year is behind us. I do feel, however, that I need to reassure our parents and community members regarding the safety measures FDISD has in place. FDISD has very old facilities with multiple entry points, and, while it is financially impractical to make major changes to our facilities, we have made a focused effort to improve the safe access to our classrooms and buildings. We put a new, higher, and stronger fence around our elementary campus. We added camera/buzzer access to the main campus entry doors. We have added and upgraded our camera systems inside and outside the buildings. We have required trainings for staff on intruders and active shooters, and we have staff trained to carry and use firearms at both campuses in cases of an active threat to our staff and student safety. There are, I am sure, more things we can do to actively monitor our facilities for threats, but I assure you that we do the best we can with what we have. FDISD staff, and the school board, are committed to keeping our children safe. There may be some inconvenient procedures for visitors to our campuses, but we want to encourage parents to visit your child's classrooms and attend their activities. There is a fine line we have to walk between community and parent involvement and school safety. I encourage anyone that may be concerned about our safety precautions to contact me. I will take whatever time necessary to try and address your fears and concerns. FDISD will continue to do our best to keep our children safe.
