Districtwide Safety and Security Information
Safety and Security is a primary concern and focus for TVUSD. In August of 2018 the District hired a full-time Coordinator of Safety and Security, Mr. Richard Dixon. In the last several months, the department has undertaken a number of initiatives focused on preserving and enhancing the safety and security of students and staff. Two years ago, the District hired a consultant to review and rewrite the District's and every school site's Standard Emergency Operation Plans. Each plan contains the following:
- Emergency Operations Plan
- School Active Assailant Plan
- Student/Parental Reunification Plan
- Earthquake Response Plan
- Continuity of Operations Plan
The focus of the recommendations was to secure our campuses with the goal of infrastructure target hardening of our schools. The goal of infrastructure target hardening recommendations when doing facility assessments at schools is to target harden them without making it look like a prison or having a detrimental effect on school operations. We want to maintain our campuses as family friendly hubs for the community with appropriate safety protocols enforced.

Students must be signed out through the Attendance Office by a parent, guardian or authorized person identified on the emergency card. Those wishing to visit classrooms must have at least 24 hours prior approval from the Principal or Assistant Principal.
Before school, students should move inside the gates once they arrive on campus. After school, students must leave campus immediately.
