FLOYDADA, TX – School Board Trustees will consider a resolution requiring at least one armed security officer on every Floydada Collegiate ISD school campus.

The resolution relates to Texas Education Code Section 37.0814, which the Texas Association of School Boards explains.

“House Bill 3 (HB 3), effective September 1, 2023, adds new Texas Education Code section 37.0814. This new law requires each school board to determine the appropriate number of armed security officers for each district campus and, absent a good cause exception, ensure at least one armed security officer–specifically, a commissioned peace officer–is present during regular school hours at each campus.”

In addition, the Board is expected to approve a resolution utilizing County Extension Agents as Adjunct Faculty Members.

The meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. at the FCISD Central Office at 226 W California Street.
