At KIPP Texas, we take the responsibility of keeping our KIPPsters safe – seriously. In the 2023-24 school year, we reaffirm our commitment to safety grounded in the following safety promise: to keep our Little and Big KIPPsters as safe as possible using reasonable, recommended, research-backed policies, procedures, and physical safety standards.

Safety Protocols

We have invested in physical safety improvements and retrofitted schools with the safest lobbies. We have made the following improvements to our safety standards:

We will require that classroom doors remain locked during instruction.

We are adding security guards across our regions to support visitor management.

We are instituting a perimeter check protocol three times daily, increasing the state requirement to once a week.

Visitor Management & Access Control

  • All exterior doors/gates will be closed and locked, as building design allows, during the school day.
  • Only visitors on verified official business will be allowed beyond the front desk.
  • All visitors, including parents/guardians, must sign in and provide valid photo identification to the front office and must visibly wear a temporary visitor’s badge at all times during their visit.
  • Any visitors without a visible visitor’s badge will be redirected back to the front office to obtain one. Visitors must report back to the front office after their visit to sign out.

Anonymous Alert

A KIPP Texas student or family can quickly and anonymously report any suspicious activity, bullying, or other student-related issues to a school administrator by submitting an Anonymous Alert report.
