NEISD Standard Response Protocol

SRP logos


When there is an issue on your child’s campus, North East ISD utilizes the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) developed by the Texas State School Safety Center to let parents, teachers, students and staff quickly understand what’s going on and how to respond.


Please familiarize yourself with the following SRP so you can better understand what to expect in the event of an emergency on a campus. 


HOLD. “Stay in your room. Clear the halls.”


This might be used if there is a fight in the hallway or a medical emergency.

Students and staff clear the hallways and remain in their classrooms.


SECURE. “Get inside.”


This might be used if there’s criminal activity in the area, or a dangerous animal near the school. Students and staff are brought inside. No going in or out. Inside the school, it will be business as usual, but situational awareness should be higher.


LOCKDOWN. “Out of sight.”


This would be used in case of an intruder and may be used for a report of a weapon on campus.

Students and staff will move away from lines of sight. Everyone will remain quiet. Lights are turned off. Staff prepare to evade or defend.


EVACUATE. “Go to a new location.”


This would be used if there is a gas leak or chemical spill.

Things are left in the classroom. Head to evacuation location.


SHELTER. “Drop, cover, hold.”


This might be used in the case of a weather event like a tornado.

Head to shelter area. Drop, cover and hold. 


It takes all of us to be #NEISDsafe. If you see something, say something.


Remember, the North East Tip Line ( gives you a safe and confidential way to report a wide variety of safety concerns. You can also call the North East Police Department non-emergency line at 210-407-0925.
