Elementary armed security guards begin September 1

Beginning September 1, all Northwest ISD elementary schools will feature armed security guards in compliance with new Texas law. These guards are on school grounds to protect students and staff, and they will monitor external doors while supporting a positive school environment.

These guards differ from school resource officers at the secondary level in that they do not perform law enforcement duties, and they cannot enforce district policy such as matters relating to disciplinary issues. To better understand the difference between armed guards and SROs, watch this video.
