On March 31, 2020, Texas City Independent School District outside Houston, ceased normal district operations, but needed to continue providing student breakfasts and lunches under the federal free and reduced meals program as well as distribute curriculum and other key resources to their students.

Having recently implemented Raptor® Emergency Management—a preparedness, response, and recovery software solution that combines proven emergency practices with 21st-century mobile technology—the district was familiar with both the Raptor system and The “I Love U Guys” Foundation SRM. One component of the Raptor Emergency Management system, Raptor Reunification®, was built to help schools reunify students with approved guardians during a crisis. Already 100% aligned with the SRM, the Raptor Emergency Management system was able to be quickly adapted to align with the SDM and support the district’s resource distribution efforts.

With the help of the Raptor system, Texas City ISD distributed and tracked delivery of more than 69,000 meals to students on the first four distribution dates and achieved 100% accountability for curriculum issued to 8,485 registered students in 12 hours over just two days.

“Raptor pulls just about everything you need from the student information system, it follows the principles of The “I Love U Guys” Foundation—it’s worth its weight in gold in today’s crisis management environment,” says Craig Straw, Texas City ISD Director of Security and Safety.
