Readopted: 6/12/17 Adopted: 6/22/09 Orig. Code(s): EBC/EBCA
The superintendent or designee will develop and maintain a plan, specifying procedures to be used in emergencies such as, including but not limited to, disorderly conduct, unlawful assembly, disturbances at school activities, natural disasters, man-made disasters, technological disasters, fire, illness or injury of a student or staff member and use of force on district property. The superintendent or designee will consult with community and local county agencies while developing this plan.
The district’s Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) will meet the standards of the State Board of Education. The EOP will be reviewed and updated annually, as necessary.
