Hello, and welcome to the NBISD safety and security department webpage. Our vision as the NBISD Safety and Security Department is to strive to be a dynamic, continuously improving organization devoted to Integrity, Professionalism, Service and Education in making our schools a safer and healthier place to learn, work and play. Our Mission is to work in partnerships to create a safer school district and preserve our special quality of life.
Without compromise, the safety and security of our students and staff is our number one priority. This is a difficult standard, no doubt, considering today’s ever changing and evolving world. To ensure we meet the standard our safety protocols and plans are fluid as well, meaning we are constantly evaluating them and adapting them to meet the demands for the safety scenario at hand.
In order to accomplish the above priority, we have added an additional layer of security for all of our campuses. Doors from the entrance to the main office will now be secured and all visitors will need to be admitted into the secure office areas by a staff member.
New Braunfels ISD has also entered into a partnership with the courageous men and women of the New Braunfels Police Department to provide dedicated School Resource Officers on each of our secondary campuses. In addition NBISD has engaged in partnerships with local law enforcement agencies including the Comal County Sheriff’s Office, Our Constable’s Offices, as well as the New Braunfels Fire Department and EMS. Each of these dedicated emergency services providers routinely circulate through our elementary campuses to foster ongoing lifelong relationships with our students.
NBISD also believes in training our staff on how to react in the event of any emergency on our campuses, or at our facilities. Our staff are trained in CPR, Stop the Bleed, and each campus maintains a Crisis Response Team (CRT) to provide direction in the event extingent circumstances occur on campus. While our staff’s main focus remains engaging and educating our students, whether in a virtual setting or in in the traditional classroom, NBISD edevors to ensure they have the knowledge and resources required to help prevent and respond to emergency situations. In order to do so, NBISD follows the Standard Response Protocols as set out by the Texas State School Safety Center and the I Love You Guys Foundation.
Our greatest safety measure, however, is vigilance. If you see something suspicious, or disconcerting, online or in person, please say something. Please report any suspicious activity or suspected dangers to the appropriate authorities immediately.

Keeping our kids safe and secure is something we should all collaborate to accomplish, and we should all have in common. With the advancements in technology and the speed of life, the internet has become a blessing and a curse. With that said, the NBISD Department of Safety and Security would like to provide you with resources to help navigate some of the issues you may face with your child regarding cyber safety in an ever-evolving digital world.
The Texas State School Safety Center realizes this as well, and has partnered with Safer Schools Together to provide parents with some insights on cyber security and digital safety with a training video: Cyber Safety and Digital Responsibility: A Parent's Guide. This 90 minute video provides some details on both the positive and negative ways youth are using, and may be misusing, technology and social media. This information can help inform and empower parents to engage in productive and useful conversations with their kids on how to safely navigate the challenges in our digital world.
