The current three-year school district safety and security audit cycle for school districts began on November 1, 2020 and will end on August 31, 2023.
School District safety and security audits required by Texas Education Code 37.108 must be completed during that cycle. The COVID 19 extension for the 2017-2020 school district audits resulted in the changes to the school district 2020-2023 audit cycle. The current cycle will therefore be two months shorter for the 2020-2023 audit cycle for school districts.
Districts are required to report specified audit results to the Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC) by September 15, 2023. The TxSSC will email Superintendents a link and unique access code to the online District Audit Reporting Tool (DARtool) on April 15, 2023. Districts may begin reporting audit results at any time after receiving the link and access code.
