Safety and Security
Safety and security at Lake Travis ISD is our top priority. We believe relationships are critical to successful schools, and ultimately, our families and students are the best partners in keeping our campuses safe. Our principals and school administrators investigate every reported tip or threat. We work with law enforcement and take quick and appropriate action, including notifying families, if there is a valid danger on campus. We ask all of our families and students to please share any information regarding school or student safety by either directly contacting a school staff member or by using the Cavs Who Care Tip Line, our anonymous alert system. As LTISD grows, we will continue to explore and collaborate with other school districts to find new ways to improve safety and security at our campuses.
Parents, guardians and others are welcome to visit LTISD schools. For the safety of those within the school setting, all visitors are expected to demonstrate the highest standards of courtesy and conduct. Disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. All visitors must immediately report to the receptionist to sign in and receive a visitor pass to wear while on campus.
Raptor Visitor Management System
For the safety and security of our students, LTISD has implemented the Raptor Visitor Managment System at all campuses. Raptor is the nation's leading provider of integrated school safety technologies and is designed to ensure that adult visitors on campus are identified and do not pose a threat to any students or staff.
Upon entering an LTISD campus, visitors will be asked to present one of the following forms of identification:
- Valid Driver’s License (any state)
- Passport State-Issued Identification
- Card Work Visa Green Card
Licenses or identification cards will be scanned and returned. Once cleared, visitors will be issued a visitor's badge, which must be worn at all times while on campus. Upon departure, the visitor's badge must be returned to the receptionist.
Standard Response Protocol
A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the classroom response to an incident at school. Weather events, fire, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by students, teachers, staff and administration.
LTISD is expanding its safety program to include the Standard Response Protocol. The SRP is based on these five actions: Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate, Shelter and Hold. In the event of an emergency, the action and appropriate direction will be announced on the PA system.
- Lockout - "Get inside. Lock outside doors"
- Lockdown - "Locks, lights, out of sight"
- Evacuate - "To the announced location"
- Shelter - "For a hazard using a safety strategy"
- Hold - "Hold in your classroom"
Students and staff will be trained and the school will practice these drills over the course of the school year. Review the SRP handouts and video below for more information.
