Texas School Safety Grant for schools and district
This August, Impero’s Board of Directors are pleased to announce a Texas School Safety Grant for U.S. schools across Texas. This grant is designed to help Texas education establishments respond to the “2019 School Safety Act” during academic year 2019 – 2020.
Establishing threat assessment teams
Responding to the ongoing need to strengthen school security, harden school infrastructure and provide mental health counseling to all students, Texas schools are required to put together threat assessment teams who would be responsible for identifying at-risk students and put processes in place to intervene before a situation may escalate. What do threat assessment teams need to do to create a safe and supportive school?
Understanding your responsibilities under 2019 School Safety Act
According to the Texas School Safety Center, identifying risks, communication among the threat assessment team and all members of staff, as well as having the right people, models and tools are important for effective threat assessment.

Responding to student safety measures
We see on the news almost every day, mental health, school hardening, school climate, bullying, suicide, lots of topics all leading back to student safety. Here at Impero we’ve responded to this change by creating our digital student portfolio. Designed to help record and manage student safety concerns, Impero EdAware bridges online and offline concerns to provide a holistic picture of a student’s wellbeing and support key responsibilities within 2019 School Safety Act.
