In an effort to help school districts bolster school safety, the South Dakota Department of Public Safety, Department of Education, Associated School Boards of South Dakota, School Administrators of South Dakota and many law enforcement agencies have designed and released a school safety template.
“This is a thorough and comprehensive framework for school districts to examine and apply to their own safety plans, if needed,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany said. “I commend every part y involved for combining their resources and developing this template.”
The School Safety template includes in-depth reviews of the roles and responsibilities in school emergency planning, emergency response procedures, threat driven procedures, resources available for schools and other key topics related to school safety.
The DOE has forwarded the template to each Superintendent. ASBSD urges you to discuss and review the template with your district’s Superintendent.
