The Board of Education acknowledges the necessity of preparing a school response framework to adequately prepare school personnel, parents and the community to respond appropriately to a crisis that involves the school community. Crisis situations that could impact the school community may or may not occur on school property and include, but are not limited to, suicide, death, acts of violence, trauma, natural disaster and accident.
As an important component of school safety planning, the school district shall continue to take the necessary steps to remain in compliance with the National Incident Management System (NIMS), as that system applies to school districts.
The Board directs the Superintendent or designee to develop, implement and maintain a School Safety, Readiness and Incident Management Plan (safety plan) including, to the extent possible, emergency communications, that coordinates with any statewide or local emergency operation plans already in place. The safety plan shall incorporate the requirements of state law.
