The Board shall adopt an Emergency Preparedness Plan based on guidelines offered by the Wyoming State Department of Education.
The effectiveness of the plan will depend on the familiarity of the staff with the plan and its practical application through drills and discussion with pupils. The plan shall be subject to review on an annual basis and shall be considered an addendum to the policies and regulations of the Board. Amendment of the plan may be accomplished by suggesting revision to the superintendent.
The plan shall be covered in teacher orientation programs and in-service training sessions at its inception and the building principal shall be responsible to insure that the plan is reviewed annually at faculty meetings. Residents of the community shall be made aware of the procedures by means of the usual news media.
The principal shall review the plan annually and will inspect alarm systems and other preparedness facilities as part of his inspection of school buildings.
Each school principal shall hold monthly drills to ensure orderly evacuation of students in the event of an emergency. A written record of these drills shall be filed with the Superintendent’s Office on a monthly basis.
