School Lockdown/Shelter-in-Place Drill Policy
New legislation (Act No. 187 and Act No. 337) requires a minimum of 2 drills for each school year, in which occupants are restricted to the interior of the building and the building is secured. This must be conducted at all schools that operate any of the grades kindergarten to 12, with security measures that are appropriate to an emergency, such as the release of a hazardous material or the presence of an armed individual on or near the premises.
This policy is not all-inclusive. We encourage every school administrator to work in coordination with emergency management and emergency responder representatives to build upon these guidelines to strengthen their ability to protect against any threat encountered, whether natural or man made.
The attached policy information and templates will assist you in coordinating and conducting the required drills.
