About Us

  • In a school setting, a crisis can arise unexpectedly, ranging from natural disasters to incidents of violence or personal traumas experienced by students and staff. The HISD Crisis Intervention Department plays a crucial role in promptly addressing and managing these situations to ensure the safety, well-being, and continuity of learning within the school community.
