TYLER— At a board meeting Monday night, Tyler Independent School District decided to hire the Texas School Safety Center to train the district on analyzing its own safety needs.
Security concerns circulated the district after the on-campus stabbing death of a John Tyler High School teacher.
Billy Jacobs of the Texas School Safety Center says it's important to note TxSSC is not a security organization. They will not provide security officers on TISD campuses.
And unlike a private security firm, the TxSSC is free.
