How Will My Child's School Handle an Emergency Situation?
- All District-wide schools and facilities have an emergency preparedness plan. The specifics of each plan differ for each location. A response to a situation will differ based on the specifics of the situation. The flexibility of the plan is key to the success of the response.
- In general, each school has a crisis management team; develops evacuation, shelter-in-place, and lockdown procedures; designates one or more appropriate evacuation sites; provides training to personnel and updating of the plan; maintains checklists for dealing with specific types of incidents; and provides resources for help before, during and after an event.
- All school plans have been reviewed and school crisis teams have received training.
