U.S. Departments of Education, Justice, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services Release School Safety District Guide
Published November 2019
On September 24, 2019, the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Justice released a new planning guide to help districts support schools developing and maintaining customized emergency operations plans (EOPs). The Role of Districts in Developing High-Quality School Emergency Operations Plans (District Guide) delivers on an interagency recommendation from the Federal Commission on School Safety's final report to provide resources to assist schools and school districts in developing customized school EOPs with their community partners, such as first responders. The District Guide is a compliment to the Guide for Developing High-Quality School Emergency Operations Plans (School Guide) and provides information that can assist school districts in fulfilling both their individual and shared emergency planning responsibilities.
