We believe students learn best in a safe and secure environment. McKinney ISD has received national attention for its comprehensive crisis response plan. The level of collaboration between McKinney ISD and local law enforcement and emergency agencies is unique. We believe this partnership is imperative in preventing and responding to potential incidents.
This commitment to safety is also evidenced by campus security “buzz-in” systems and campus visitor registry systems that run checks against local, state, and national sex offender databases. Furthermore, each campus is required to practice (unannounced) lock-down drills and other precautionary exercises. These safety exercises are always performed in a positive and non-threatening manner. In addition, McKinney P.D. School Resource Officers (SRO’s) are assigned district-wide. We believe that these security measures, along with support from staff and parents, are the reason our schools have earned a reputation for being safe and positive learning environments.
