District employees in the Facilities & Transportation, Child Nutrition, Technology, Custodial Services, Police Services and the CISD Warehouse received special safety footwear designed to facilitate their work duties.

The shoes were funded through CISD’s Workers’ Compensation Program.

“The District is committed to giving each employee the tools they need to do their job efficiently,” said Superintendent Dr. Pedro Galaviz. “This includes providing them with the correct shoes they need to be safe and ready to serve our students.”

This year, the program was expanded to include footwear for security-in-training personnel that is part of Canutillo High School’s Criminal Justice P-TECH Program. The students assist CISD Police Services in providing patrolling services throughout the District and during special events.

“We are thrilled to be able to include our students this year,” said Jose Barraza, Assistant Director of Human Services. “As key members of our safety efforts, it is imperative that they, too, have the right equipment to do their job.”
