Safety & Security


Durant Public Schools believes in the importance of keeping students safe and secure, whether they are in a classroom, an extracurricular activity or even traveling between school and home.

Not only is keeping students safe and secure important, it is a priority. A safe and secure school environment is essential to the learning process. All of our school sites have electronically locked door systems and provide a barrier to direct student access for visitors. DISD Emergency procedures are currently in place for:

  • Power Outages/Utility Failures
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Lost or Missing Children
  • Hazardous Material Spills
  • Bomb Threats/Suspicious Packages
  • Assaults
  • Weapons on School Grounds
  • Fire/Explosions
  • Severe Weather
  • Lockdowns for any reason

Program Implementation

Each year, administrators review emergency procedures, security concerns and safety precautions for its students, families and staff. Also, schools participate in routine drills to help students feel more comfortable in the event of an actual emergency.

All campuses are equipped with a SchoolSafeID Kiosk to be used when checking a student in late and/or early. Individuals checking a student out must have a state issued ID to complete check-out.

We encourage parents to know our procedures and feel free to contact us if you have any safety or security concerns. If you have information about a threat to our safety, we encourage you to report it to our Superintendent's office and know your information will remain anonymous.

*The DISD School Safety Taskforce includes members from the Sheriff’s Department, School Resource Officers, Durant Police Department, Durant Fire Department, OSBI, FBI, Tribal Police, City of Durant, Southeastern Oklahoma State University Police and Administration, Durant ISD Administration, Bryan County Emergency Management and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
