J.T. Patton, Executive Director of Safety and Operations
It is the mission of our schools to provide quality instruction for our students in a safe and secure environment. We take this responsibility seriously and continuously strive to prepare ourselves to respond to our environment.
It is not uncommon for schools across the nation to encounter challenges of students making inappropriate comments perceived as threatening the safety of others. In the event such threats are made, it is FISD’s practice to immediately contact any individual and parents of students who may be threatened in any manner.

However, Friendswood Independent School District is precluded by law from commenting publicly on specific student disciplinary matters. Additional police presence is also employed during such incidents.
