Campus Emergency Drills
We train our staff and students in four Standard Response Protocols; lockout, lockdown, evacuate and shelter.
These four simple procedures give our staff and students the tools to properly initiate emergency response
actions for most any emergency that may occur on a campus.
All drills are reported by campus administrators to the Department of Safety and Emergency Management.
Initiated when there is a threat located outside of the building. Each campus is required to
LOCKOUT conduct at least one lockout drill annually.
Initiated when there is a threat inside of the building. Each campus is required to conduct
LOCKDOWN at least one lockdown drill annually.
EVACUATE most common use of this action is a fire drill, in which students are evacuated to
predetermined staging areas. Each campus is required to conduct at least one fire
evacuation drill each month that has 10 or more school days.
Shelter is called when the need for personal protection is necessary. Each campus is
SHELTER required to conduct one Severe Weather/Tornado shelter drill in each semester.
