• District-wide School Safety Plan

    Emergencies and violent incidents in school districts are critical issues that must be addressed

    in an expeditious and effective manner. Districts are required to develop a District-wide School

    Safety Plan designed to prevent or minimize the effects of serious violent incidents and

    emergencies and to facilitate the coordination of the district with local and county resources in

    the event of such incidents or emergencies.

     

    The district-wide plan is responsive to the needs of all schools within the district and is

    consistent with the more detailed emergency response plans required at the school building

    level. Districts are at risk of a wide variety of acts of violence, natural, and technological

    disasters. To address these threats, the State of New York has enacted the Safe Schools

    Against Violence in Education (SAVE) law. This component of Project SAVE is a

    comprehensive planning effort that addresses risk reduction/prevention, response, and

    recovery with respect to a variety of emergencies in the school district and its schools.

     

    St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES continues to support this integral component of the SAVE

    Legislation through the regular review and updating of its contents. The District Superintendent

    of Schools encourages and advocates this ongoing district-wide cooperation and support of

    Project SAVE.
