Standard Response Protocol
Creating a safer school climate for our students is a priority. A critical ingredient in creating a safer school environment is classroom response
to an incident at school. Weather
events, fire, accidents, intruders and other threats to student
safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by students,
teachers, staff and administration, in partnership with our first
The Beaverton School District
in collaboration with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO),
Beaverton Police (BPD) and Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue (TVFR) has
implemented the Standard Response Protocol (SRP).
Standard Response Protocol (SRP)
The SRP is not based on one
individual possible scenario but on the response to any given scenario.
One large benefit of the SRP is the standard language used by all
responders; this includes students, parents, staff
and first responders. The protocol also allows for a predictable series
of actions as an event unfolds.
The SRP is based upon four actions: Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate and Shelter. Each has specific staff and student directives that are unique to the action.
