Copperas Cover Independent School District (CCISD) will implement new security measures and revamped emergency procedures.
That's after nine bomb threats and shooting threats at schools over the past week prompted an emergency meeting for administrators Friday morning.
Classes have been canceled for three days, while they and police came up with the new security measures.
In a unanimous decision that took about an hour to make, the CCISD Board of Trustees approved the plans to boost security on campuses.
It was a relief to Denise Brewer, who has five kids in the bomb threat-ridden school district.
"I like the decision, I think the school board is doing what they can do to implement good measures for our children's safety," said Denise.
While the meeting was open to the public, the board's actual discussion took place behind closed doors, and for now, it's keeping the new security procedures secret.
"We don't want to give an upper hand to anyone that might be trying to plan some harm against our students and our staff," said Olga Pena, spokesperson for CCISD.
But mother of two Brenda Reynolds was hoping there would be some communication between administrators and parents at the meeting.
She said, "I want answers, and I want to know what's going to go on next week. I want them to be back in school. That's what I have my kids in school for, an education, which they're not getting because of some ridiculous kids playing a game."
Denise left the meeting a satisfied mom, feeling like she got what she came for.
"I want to be able to go back and tell them that they are trying to make their school safe for them, so that they don't have to go to school worrying."
Class is set to resume on Monday morning.
If more threats are called in, school officials say they'll cross that bridge when they get there.
As for the school days already missed, the district and Texas Education Agency have not yet decided how they'll make them up.
