The California Education Code requires school districts to prepare and submit school safety plans annually. Are these plans realistic? Have they been created using a collaborative process? Is your district reviewing safety trends and making adjustments to your plan on a regular basis? Does your staff know how to coordinate with emergency personnel using the state and federally adopted system that is required by law?
Spend some time with me learning how my district creates and tests our safety plans using a collaborative process with stakeholders in the community. See how training, tabletop exercises and drills test the plan and create opportunities to make frequent updates so we’re always ready to respond should disaster strike. Learn from my experience as an emergency responder and school board member how to implement a process so you feel confident that your district staff knows how to respond and coordinate with emergency response personnel when an incident occurs.
