New Braunfels ISD began making security upgrades across all campuses this year, and the new position of director of safety and security will work with administration officials to make safety procedures stronger, Superintendent Randy Moczygemba said.

The new director, Jay Huffty, graduated from the East Texas Police Academy in 1993 and served as a police officer for 10 years. In 2003, Huffty earned his master's degree in education with a focus in special education. He obtained his superintendent certification in 2015.


Huffty has previously worked as an administrator at San Marcos CISD, Comal ISD, Gonzales ISD and Lockhart ISD, where he led developmental staff trainings on safety and presented appropriate student discipline techniques.

“He has a lot of experience and knowledge in this area,” Moczygemba said of Huffty. "We're grateful to have him."
