Executive Director of Security and School Safety, Texas City Independent School District

Mike Matranga is the Executive Director of Security and School Safety for the Texas City Independent School District (ISD), a public school district based in Texas City, Texas, serving 9,000 students.

Though there are many things he is proud of in his career, Matranga is most proud of developing the safety and security protocols at Texas City ISD. “I was hired fresh off the heels of the Parkland and Santa Fe Shootings, which I believe were the pivotal point in our society where the people of this great country started to rally together and demand answers, accountability and action, not only from their school officials, but our elected officials as well,” he notes.
