Willis ISD has on staff a Director of Communication and support staff. The Willis ISD Communications team supports district and campus goals to promote a positive, informative and educational climate by facilitating communications between and among students, staff, parents, and the community. The department works to communicate the outstanding achievements of our students, increase parental and community engagement, and foster public trust and understanding. The department would lead communication efforts to parents and media in the event of an emergency. The district has accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Campus Law Enforcement monitors several student social media apps; Snapchat, TikTok, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, Whisper, Messenger, HOLLA, Yik Yak To stay abreast of student’s activities. Willis ISD also understands social media will play an important part with students when these major events occur. The impact of such a tragic event causes even young students to disengage with parents and adults turning to social media for more information or to reach their peers. School Safety Center provides an excellent guide, Psychological Impact of the Recent Shooting, provides more information on reactions, consequences, and coping for parents.
