CORPUS CHRISTI – The open environment at Carroll High School can be a security challenge however, steps are in place to keep students safe.

District police officers play a big role in student safety, officers will be on duty at this open wing school. With money from a 2016 bond, the district was able to make security upgrades.

These security measures are combined with the extensive training currently which is underway for CCISD police, to help ensure students safety.

Although Carroll High School is a big campus, officers with CCISD are prepared to take action with these safety measures.

“We’re all part of the same group everyone wants to be safe and secure and so by everyone being involved it really, it makes me excited for the upcoming school year and knowing that we are doing great things in CCISD to keep our students safe”, says Chief Kirby Warnke with the CCISD police department.

The force is committed to taking out all threats to protect our children.

This goes hand in hand with required unique planning.

Also at Carroll High School, safety glass will be installed in the front lobby of the school, so whoever someone comes into the building, they will need to get buzzed in through the area.

Cameras will also capture all activity going on in the front lobby along with other cameras placed around the campus.

Carroll High School has an identification tag system in place. These tags are issued to everyone, including teachers, staff, and visitors when they check in. This is a helpful way to see how officers can immediately know if someone is supposed to be on campus or not.
