Building Blocks to School Safety: A Toolkit for Schools and Districts for Developing High-Quality Emergency Operations Plans [open pdf - 7MB]
From the Document: "The 'Guide for Developing High-Quality School Emergency Operations Plans' ('School Guide') aligns and builds upon years of emergency planning work by the Federal government and is the first joint product of the U.S. Departments of Education (ED), Justice, led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Homeland Security, led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and Health and Human Services on this critical topic. The 'School Guide' is customized to each type of community, incorporates lessons learned from recent incidents, and responds to the needs and concerns voiced by stakeholders in the field. It may be used to create new plans as well as to revise and update existing plans, and to align emergency planning practices with those at the national, state, and local levels."
