What is the District Audit Report?
State law requires school districts to complete a safety and security audit at least once every three years. The audit report is a self-assessment of your district’s progress toward providing safe, secure working and learning environments. The Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC) spearheads the audit and produces an aggregate report for the public.
