High Island ISD Receives Grant From
Texas Association of School Boards Risk Management Foundation
High Island ISD has been awarded a $3000 loss prevention grant from the TASB Risk Management Fund. The competitive grant program is opened each year in the spring to districts who are members of this cooperative program. The grants help implement loss prevention and safety initiatives that reduce the potential for property losses and on-the-job injuries, improve emergency management operations, and raise awareness of safety issues. District applicants are to analyze their exposures and identify the best ways to mitigate those risks. For this year’s grant, High Island ISD chose to continue its focus on the area of campus security and student safety by applying for funds to purchase and install additional fencing along the perimeter of the campus. The district believes this will impact student safety throughout the day and lessen the chance for property losses through increased security. We appreciate the efforts of HIISD Chief Financial Officer Laura Socha in applying for this grant.
