The School Safety section enforces rules and statutes at schools located in areas of the state without local Health Departments. To determine if your area of the state has a local Health Department, please refer to the Texas Department of State Health Services list of Full Service Health Departments or list of Non-participating Health Departments.
Some of the inspections conducted at schools include Food Service inspections, facility/building inspections, playground inspections, swimming pool inspections, and compliance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). Our purpose is to ensure a safe and healthy environment for students at the school.
