A goal of the District is to protect the safety and well-being of students, faculty, and community in any crisis which might occur in the District. The District recognizes the need for careful planning before a crisis occurs, utilizing available resources, and efficiently working with community agencies in a preplanned procedure to resolve or intervene in a crisis situation.
A District-wide team may provide assistance to building administration, faculty, and students in the event of a crisis situation. The declaration of a crisis situation and request for team assistance will be determined by the building principal or designee. The team will be trained and will follow a planned procedure in dealing with other agencies, the news media, emergency services, and community members.
