Safety is everyone's responsibility. A school district's administrators, whether on the campus or in the district's central offices, have a crucial role in assuring that students and teachers work and learn in an environment that is safe. See TEA Texas Safety Standards Introduction for more on the administrators' responsibibilities. As educators, we share the duty and responsibility to guard our safety and the safety of our students by providing training, supervision, and a safe environment in which to learn science.
