DISCUSSION:
The School Site Safety Plans include assessments of the current state of school crime, identify
appropriate strategies and programs to address school safety issues. The school safety plan provides
procedures for complying with existing laws related to school safety, child abuse reporting
procedures, disaster preparedness, suspension, expulsion, as well as procedures for notifying
teachers of dangerous pupils. Other topics include sexual harassment policy, dress codes, safe
egress and ingress, a safe and orderly environment, and the rules on school discipline. Each school
is required to evaluate and amend their plan on an annual basis. The attached revisions reflect this
process.

FISCAL IMPACT:
The school will use categorical funding and other funding included in their Single Plan for Student
Achievement to support their school site safety plans and programs.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
The Board of Education, State Administrator, and Interim Superintendent are requested to approve
the updated School Safety Plans for the OUSD school sites as attached.

   3. The California HealthyKids Survey provides added information
      regarding student social emotional needs.

   4. Noon time supervisors are interviewed and report incidents of
      violence or safety challenges during playground play times.

   5. Staff collects data on the types of incidents that are being sent to
      the office for discipline. The spreadsheet includes who, what,
      when, and classroom teacher for each incident.

   6. Teachers provide information regarding individual students to
      support student achievement. The staff reviews formative
      assessment every six weeks.

   7. Teachers monitor conflict resolution and Second Step program.

   8. SSTs are scheduled for specific students.

   9. Weekly progress reports are sent home for all students.



Conclusions derived from the use of this data analysis includes that
most problems occur during the lunch time recess and conflicts are
reduced when the school leadership provides more planed activities
during recess and talk about school rules with the students.

According to several recent studies, the most effective school-based conflict resolution programs are
"comprehensive" in that they include multiple program components. The recommended components of
comprehensive programs include (1) Curriculum, (2) Peer Mediation, (3) Staff Development, (4)
ParenVCommunity Initiatives, (4) SChool wide Reinforcement and Behavior Management Systems, and
(5) Evaluation. These multiple-component comprehensive programs may also be called "school wide
programs" or "peaceable schools programs." (See References section of this section for research
ctatons.)

Schools often begin by instituting one component then bUilding other components around it 10establish
a comprehensive program. In some schools, conflict resolution is integrated into the school wide
instructional and behavior management systems; in others, the conflict resolution strategies are
presented as a separate program, with specialized curriculum and activilles. There are numerous
opponunlties for including conflict resolution program components in schools, including Integration
through the academic or the elective curriculum, citizenship and law studies, peer education classes,
educational reform efforts, multicultural education, school safety and violence prevention efforts, anger
management programs, classroom management strategies, school wide discipline policies and
procedures, and cooperative learning and critical thinking strategies. The following are brief
descriptions of the components of a comprehensive school-based conflict resolution program.



 Curriculum

The curriculum component of the conflict resolution program provides the foundation for creating a
peaceful and safe school environment and ensures that all students gain the skills and knowledge to
respond constructively to conflict. ideally, all students In the school learn the skills necessary to resolve
conflict peacefully. For example, some programs require the curriculum be fully implemented for at
least a year before other program components are included.

The conflict resolution curriculum may be purchased as a Whole, developed locally, or adapted from a
variety of sources to meet local needs. The curriculum should provide research-based,
developmentally appropriate materials and activities that:

             •    Present concrete strategies for dealing wilh conflict in a positive manner

             •    Provide lessons with a variety of activities, including real-life scenarios for role play,
                  interviews, group dialogue, brainstorming, and other experiential learning strategies
                  requiring student participation and interaction

             •    Include structured, specific instruction and practice regarding the problem-solving
                  skills of negotiation, mediation and consensus decision making

             •    Define conflict and provide inrormenon about how conflicts arise from a clash of
                  needs, drives, wishes or demands

             •    Depict conflict itself as neither positive nor negative, and explain conflict as a normal
                  part of life




                                                                                                         6

                          2008-2009 Comprehensive School Safety Plan

            •   Teach that thoughtful resolution of conflicts can be achieved and win-win solutions
                can be reached

            •   Create understanding of common values, beliefs, and attitudes including nonviolence,
                compassion, empathy, fairness, trust, justice, respect for self and others, and
                appreciation of diversity

            •   Provide opportunities to practice empathizing, self-evaluating, reviewing personal
                biases and suspending judgment

            •   Provide opportunities to practice communicating emotions effectively, expressing
                emotions in non-aggressive, non-inflammatory ways, and exercising self-control

            •   Provide opponunltes to practice active listening skills, effective speaking skills and
                using neutral, less emotional terms to facilitate negotiation

            •   Allow for creativity and innovation in solving problems and making decisions

            •   Help develop critical thinking skills by providing opportunities to recognize accepted
                criteria for behavior and apply established criteria as the basis for choosing options
                and planning future behaviors

            •   Address the basic underlying concepts of conflict resolution, including separating the
                people from the problem; focusing on interests, not posmons: creating options so
                everyone wins; and using accepted fair standards and fair procedures



 Peer Mediation

The peer mediation component of the comprehensive conflict resolution program involves selected
students who are trained in the basic underlying concepts of conflict resolution and the steps of the
mediation process. Peer mediation programs are among the most widely implemented conflict
resolution program components for grades K through 12. The comprehensive conflict resolution
program utilizes the peer mediation approach to intervene in disputes and teaches students how to
solve their own disagreements. Students working in peer mediator teams handle common student-
student disputes such as rumors, damaged friendships, misunderstandings, arguments, fights, bullying
and disputes over personal property, Student mediators do not handle conflicts involving drugs,
weapons, abuse or other illegal activity,

The student mediators may be selected in a number of ways. Some schools offer a process through
which interested students may apply to become mediators, reserving a few spaces for students
appointed by faculty and staff. Other school programs survey the students, asking for nominations of
students who are trustworthy and who communicate well w~h their peers. From the survey results,
selected students are invited to serve as mediators.

Balancing the peer mediation team in terms of gender, race and student group identity is important to
ensure all students view the mediation team as accessible and to provide the broadest possible mix of
perspectives. The most popular and successful students are not the only appropriate choices for peer
mediators. When grouped with positive peer leaders, students seen as negative leaders, bullies or
troublemakers can become good peer mediators. When given the responsibility and treated as
trustworthy to perform within the system, these students often rise to the occasion.




                                                                                                  7

                           2008-2009 Comprehensive         School Safety Plan

Regardless of the approach to selection, all peer mediators receive training and ongoing refresher
sessions conducted by professional mediation trainers andlor trained school staff members. Peer
mediation training is tailored to the time restraints of the schooi and mediation team, the resources
available and the developmental level of the students. Peer mediation programs require 12 to 20 hours
of training for the student mediators, wah periodic follow-up sessions to refine necessary skills. An
effective training model for peer mediators will include instruction and practice in:

                 •    Effective communication

                 •    Maintaining confidentiality

                 •    Remaining non-judgmental

                 •    Active listening skills, accurately restating and clarifying what is said

                 •    Asking neutral questions, selecting neutral language

                 •    Detecting the underlying cause of a conflict

                 •    Techniques for defusing anger

                 •    Techniques for developing empathy between disputants

                 •    Using self-control to remain neutral

                 •    Basic underlying concepts and assumptions of conflict resolution

                 •    Specific steps and procedures for conducting the mediation process

Depending upon program design, age and skills of the students, the physical plant of the school and
other local factors, mediations may be scheduled and conducted at a designated location on campus or
they may lake place when and where the dispute arises, such as on the playground or in the
lunchroom. In addltlon, adults may refer students to mediation or the disputants themselves may seek
it. For all mediations, confidentiality is required. Teams of two or three conduct most mediation - using
a single mediator is not recommended.



 Professional Development

Each component of the comprehensive conflict resolution program requires a different level of
commitment, training and participation for the various stakeholders, including policy makers, teachers,
counselors, administrators and other staff. For example, integrating conflict resolution into the existing
curricuium demands understanding of conflict and conflict resolution approaches. Whether the
curriculum is presented as part of regular instruction or as a separate study, the teachers and staff
involved must receive sufficient training and practice to internalize the concepts and master the skills of
conflict resolution.

In the same way, implementation of a peer mediation component requires training for the staff
member(s) who will serve as Program Coordinator(s) as well as an introductory presentation and
ongoing communication with all school staff. Including the entire school staff - the cook, custodian,
playground supervisor, secretary, as well as counselor, nurse, administrators and teachers -
promotes school wide acceptance and utilization of conflict resolution concepts and skills.




                                                                                                       8

                           2008-2009 Comprehensive Schoof Safety Plan

Program implementation should begin with a staff development plan including strategies and ongoing
schedules for (1) overview presentations to board members, administrators, teachers and other staff,
(2) school wide staff development so adults can begin to use conflict resolution skills and model them
for students, and (3) continuing instrue!ion and support for those directly involved with coordination and
delivery of the curriculum, the peer mediation, parent/community initiatives, school wide behavior
management systems and evaluation components.

The developers of many comprehensive programs provide 10- to 25-hour introductory courses for
teachers and other staff. The introduction includes theory and strategies that provide the foundation for
conflict resolution, multicuitural approaches, anger management techniques and basic negotiation
skills. Introductory courses prepare school personnel, from administrators to teachers to support staff,
to serve as role models in resolving conflie! and to teach the skills as part of classroom instrue!ion and
as part of campus life. The introdue!ory courses also provide assistance for integrating conflict
resolution into the academic curriculum and provide practice in teaching strategies such as cooperative
learning groups, role-playing, interviewing and brainstorming. Some schools, especially at the
secondary level, launched their programs by providing introductory and intensive follow-up staff
development for a core group of interested staff members, and later expanded the staff development
offerings when the program effectiveness became apparent and general staff interest increased.



 Parent/Community             Initiatives

The longevity and impact of school-based conflict resolution programs increase substantially when
community and family members are included. Extending the conflie! resolution program into the family
and community allows students to apply the principles and skills of peaceful connct resokrtcn in a
variety of settings and reinforces those principles and skills as part of everyday. life. Comprehensive
programs provide training and materials so families can practice and reinforce conflict resolution at
home and may offer parents opportunities to participate as negotiators, peer mediation facilitators or
classroom/school resources.

Many programs offer 10 to 20 hours of training for families to learn the skills and principles of conflict
resolution so they and their children can peacefully resoive disputes at home, In some programs
conflie! resolution is taken to parents through workshops provided at the school or at sites in the
community. These approaches reinforce the skills children are learning and practicing at school and
build leadership among parents and children. Parent participants may become trainers of other parents
by receiving an extended training program.

Because of their interest in and commitment to violence prevention and conflie! resolution, local
community-based groups are positive additions to the planning and implementation process for school-
based programs. Community mobilization can be promoted through the involvement of parents, police,
the business community, churches, community coalitions, local government agencies and other public
and private agencies. Locai citizenship and law-related organizations may offer assistance In teaching
negotiation skills and extending the school-based conflict resolution strategies into the neighborhood
and community. Local colleges and universities also may be valuable resources for school-based
programs. For example, many schools have effectively used college interns to assist with training or
ongoing program coordination.

In some cases, the community brings the conflict resolution process to the schools. Community
programs are aimed at providing youth with cermet resolution training through youth clubs, churches,
court referral services and other organizations and often serve to reinforce school-based programs.
Programs that include families and other community members tend to have richer linkages to
resources and trainers, greater impact on those involved, and stronger bases for program longevity.

 School wide Reinforcement and Behavior Management Systems

Implementation of a truly comprehensive school-based program requires school wide reinforcement of
conflict resolution theory and practice and changes in the behavior management systems of the school.
Because effective conflict resolution calls for the absence of coercion and the use of cooperative
approaches rather than competition, many traditional academic and disciplinary policies contradict
peaceful conmct resolution. As the conflict resolution program develops, the school community will
need to address specific elements of policies and procedures and alter them to support the use of
conflict resolution theory and skills.

Often school behavior management systems are based on punishment rather than self-discipline.
Implementing conflict resolution strategies encourages people to talk about their interests and needs
and to work collaboratively to find solutions. This shift to conflict resolution concepts supports student
compliance without external coercion and promotes the development of disciplined individuals who are
internally motivated to complyw~h behavior expectations.

Transforming district and school discipline policies to reflect conflict resolution theory allows educators
to model an orderly, productive system accomplished through cooperation, and the discipline system
itself becomes an integral part of the educational program. The vansrormanon to a peaceful school
takes place in stages, with elements of systemic change occurring as the program components are
implemented and as adults and students incorporate conflict resolution practices into their daily
interactions. At each stage of program implementation, school policies and behavior management
systems should be reviewed and altered as necessary. For example, discipline referral policies can be
revised to include the peer mediation team, thus reducing the number of incidents requiring intervention
by teachers, counselors or administrators. Teachers involved in the program may change their
classroom management systems to reflect conflict resolution concepts and skills, and may influence
others to do the same. Schools may implement additional strategies, such as anger management
programs, and devise alternatives to suspension as part of the peaceable schools approach. In some
schools, the conflict resolution skills, knowledge and behaviors have been incorporated into the report
card, providing school wide reinforcement for mastery and use of conflict resolution concepts and
linking the program to success at school. Many program developers offer technical assistance and
ongoing consultation to help gamer the support of governing boards, administrators, staff and the
community, to develop school wide reinforcement of the program, and to insmute behavior
management systems that reflect conflict resolution program philosophy.



 Evaluation

Evaluation is necessary for the successful implementation and continuation of any school-based
program and takes place on numerous levels. The evaluation process begins with a needs assessment
conducted before the program design is complete and continues throughout program implementation
and institutionalization. The evaluation process provides a picture of the present state of the school,
indicates successful strategies and areas for improvement and provides assessment of the
effectiveness of the program components. The evaluation plan is the means through which the
program can be continuously improved. (Sample questionnaires designed for students, staff and
parents can be found in Safe Schools: A Planning Guide for Action, California Department of
Education and the Office of the Attorney General. See the Resources section of this document for
ordering information.)


                                                                                                      10

                              2008-2009 Comprehensive      School Safety Plan




The evaluation provides information for:

                  •    Identifying the real issues and distinguishing their relative importance

                  •    Identifying existing assets as well as program needs

                  •                                                                  data gathered later
                       Establishing the starting point, a "baseline" to compare IoVith

                  •    Communicating the issues and needs to staff, students, families, community, and
                       administration

                  •    Creating focus on the important issues, avoiding the potential for splinter groups

                  •    Determining if school violence is decreasing·     documenting which strategies are
                       effective, which need revision

                  •    Creating a common language and factual base to publicize program effectiveness

A well-prepared and thoroughly implemented evaluation plan can serve to bring school staff and
cornmunty together, united in a common purpose. The evaluation plan should include assessment
strategies for all program components as well as ongoing assessment of school climate and participant
responses to the program. The evaluation process is discussed in mere detail in the Evaluation
section.

Section 3: School Procedures for Complying with School Safety Laws

When a student is sent to the office for discipline, a conversation with
the principal and/or the school psychologist takes place. For reoccurring
problems, a counseling time is scheduled with the school psychologist
for follow-up with the student. Additionally, the following process is
completed:

   1. The staff member completes an Incident Report Form.
   2. Parents are contacted by phone about their child's behavior when
      hitting or biting has occurred or when the student repeatedly
      disrupts the class.

   3. Parents must attend a conference with the principal and a teacher
      for serious and/or reoccurring incidents.

   4. Parents must pick up their child from school for more serious
      infractions or students must participate in an in-school informal
      suspension as a "time out" in another classroom.

   5. Serious infractions require student suspensions per the District
      Handbook and policies and procedures.

Section 3: School Procedures for Complying with School Safety Laws

 What Is A Comprehensive School Safety Plan?

"Each School District and County Office of Education is responsible for the overall development of
Comprehensive School Safety Plans for its schools operating any kindergarten and any of grades 1 to
12, Inclusive."

A Comprehensive School Safety Plan brings together all of the elements of school safety, some of
which have existed for quite some time. It makes them accessible to everyone involved (District Office,
School Sites, Parents, and Communities).   It also forces a review, evaluation, and amendment process
on a yearly basis.

The comprehensive district wide safety plan identifies major safety concerns as well as the district's
goals and priorities for safe schools. To summarize, this document contains the requirements set forth
in Education Code Section 32280-32289 (58 187 - California Comprehensive School Safety Pian):

             •   Assessment     of status of school crime
             •   Child Abuse reporting procedures      pursuant to PC 11164 et seq.
             •   Disaster procedures, rouling and emergency         procedures
             •   Policies related to suspension, expulsion or mandatory expulsion and other school-
                 designated serious acts which would lead to suspension or expulsion
             •   Notification   procedures   to teachers    regarding    dangerous   students   (pursuant   to   EC
                 49079
             •   Sexual Harassment      Policy
             •   Provisions for school-wide dress codes
             •   Safe ingress and egress procedures for pupils, parents, and school employees               to and
                 from school
             •   Safe and orderly school environment
             •   Discipline and behavior rules and procedures           pursuant to EC 35291 and EC 35291.5
             •   Notes and minutes for public meetings pertaining to school safely


        The State Legislature's intent in enacting 58 187 was to ..... unite all existing statutes
        that relate to school safety and ensure compliance with their provisions by including
        the requirements of school safety provisions in each school's comprehensive school
        safety plan." 58 1871hen lists (in Education Code section 35294.2, later revised and
         renumbered to Sections 32280-32289) the required elements of this comprehensive
        school safety plan.




                                                                                                             21

                           2008·2009 Comprehensive School Safety Plan

            Placing school safety procedures and policies together in one plan as required by 56187
            has the great benefit of allowing school administrators to ensure that this vital learning
            support element is fully in place. In addition, developing this comprehensive school safety
            plan provides the opportunity to fulfill the requirements of the Improving America's Schools
            Act, Title IV to conduct an objective analysis of drug and violence problems in schools and
            to set measurable goals for dealing with those problems.




 What Are The Components of the OUSD Comprehensive                                   School
 Safety Plan?


 There are five documents that comprise the Comprehensive School Safety Plan for Oakland Unified
 School District. They are:

                 1.   School Safety and Security Plan

                 2.   Emotional Crisis and Psychological Response Plan

                 3.   District Disaster and Emergency Response Pian

                 4.   Emergency Standard Operating Procedures

                 5.   Schooi Site Disaster Plan

SChool Safety & Security Plan

This document is still under development by the District Safety Committee. It is intended for use by all
Site and District Administrators, Teachers, Parents and Law Enforcement. The School Safety &
Security Plan consists of: information relating to the assessment of school crime; policies and
procedures (Handling Child Abuse situations, Shooting or Sniper On Campus procedures, policies
related to suspension/expulsion, discipline & behavior guidelines & policy, sexual harassment policy,
dress codes, safe ingress/egress at school sites),; safe & orderly school environment guidelines (safety
committee organization, drug-free schools guidelines, hate-motivated behavior handling guidelines,
connct resolution); and other related information that is unique to each school site as determined by the
school site safety council.

EmotionalCrisis & PsychologicalResponse Plan

This document is designed to assist school site personnel to prepare for a potential psychological crisis
arising from an emergency or unusual event. Sound preparations, or lack thereof, make the critical
difference in the severity of emotional trauma to students or staff. Some examples of emergencies or
unusual events are:

                 •    A natural disaster

                 •    An accident on school grounds

                 •    An accident near school grounds

                 •    A violent Incident in or near the school



                                                                                                    22

                 •    A violent incident involving a student or staff member off school grounds

                 •    The suicide of a student or staff member

                 •    The suicide of a family member of a student or staff member

                 •    The accidental death of a student or staff member

                 •    The accidental death of a family member of a student or staff member

                 •    The terminal illness of a student or staff member

District Disaster & Emergency Response Plan

This document addresses the OUSD responsibilities in emenercee associated with natural disaster,
human-caused emergencies, and technological incidents. It provides a framework for coordination of
response and recovery efforts within the District in coordination with local, State, and Federal agencies.
The Plan establishes an emergency organization to direct and control operations at all sites during a
period of emergency by assigning responsibilities to specific personnel.


Emergency Standard Operating Procedures

This document is designed for use by any adult in the district. These are checklists and guidelines to
assist in first response to nearly any emergency. Besides the booklet format, Emergency Standard
Operating Procedures will be available in a step-chart format and distributed to every classroom and
office in the district.

SChool Site Disaster Plan

This document is a template that has been delivered to every principal in the district. It is designed to
be used as a disaster plan for each school and can be easily adapted and customized to each unique
site. These were delivered to all principals in 2000, but it is understood that since then, these may have
come up missing or misplaced. This document will be available from the District in print form and on
CD-ROM in Microsoft Word formal.

Overview


Oakland Untried School District school administrators have the responsibility for ensuring lhat safety of
their students and staff in an emergency, whether it is an earthquake, a flood, or a terrorism incident.
Developing emergency plans and training in emergency response is required by law, The Katz Act
(Sections 35295-35297 of the California Education Code) requires that schools plan for earthquakes
and other emergencies.

The Petris Bill (Section 8607 of the California Government Code) requires that school districts be
prepared to respond to emergencies by using the Standardized Emergency Management System
(SEMS). This necessitates that the principles of SEMS be incorporated into plans, that all school
personnel be trained in how the system works, and that schoois have drills and exercises in order to
practice using the system.

Thefollowing is a summary of the requirements of the above laws:

    1)   Earthquake Preparedness: In 1984, the state legislature passed the Katz Act requiring that
         schools establish an earthquake emergency system. IN 1988, the legislature amended the
         law to require that training in earthquake preparedness procedures should be for both
         cetnceteo and classfled staff. The law requires that schools do the following:
              a) Develop a disaster plan to maintain the safety and care of students and staff. The
                  plan should outline emergency roles, procedures for students and staff, and
                  appropriate, ongoing training for all employees and students.
              b) Conduct periodic drills in the "drop & cover" procedure, the evacuation procedure, and
                  other emergency response actions (i.e. search & rescue, communications, and
                  damage assessment) to train students and staff.
              c) Provide training programs to ensure staff and students are aware of, and properly
                  trained to follow the plan and the emergency response procedures.
              d) Be prepared to have schools serve as a possible public shelter for the community
                  during disasters or emergencies.
              e) Take mitigation measures now to ensure the safety of students and staff, and the
                  viability of the school facility during and after an earthquake or other emergency.

    2)   Emergency Response: As a result of the Oakland Hills Fire in 1991, The Peuis Bill was
         passed to improve emergency response in California. Effective January 1, 1993, Section 8607
         of the California Government Code requires that state and local governments, and special
         districts such as schools, respond to disaster using the Standardized Emergency Management
         System {SEMS}. By December 1996, each responding organization must use SEMS or risk
         losing state assistance funds for emergency response-related personnel costs. Using SEMS
         also includes planning, training, and exercises (California Code of Regulation 2400-2450),
         SEMS requires that each organization understands and uses the following:
               a) The Incident Command System, a method of organizing any emergency response
                   effort into five basic functions: management, planning/intelligence, operations,
                   logistics, and finance/administration.
               b) An Emergency Operations Center (or Incident Command Post), the staff which is also
                   organized according to the same fIVe functions as the Incident Command System.
               c) Coordination of the school district Emergency Operations Center with the Operational
                   Area (Contra Costa County OES) Emergency Operations Center, with its city
                    EmergencyOperations Center, and with its county Office of Education.
               d) Incorporation of SEMS into all schools plans, training, and exercises.
               e) Documentation of the use of SEMS during an actual emergency.




                                                                                                      25

                            2008-2009 Comprehensive Schoof Safety Plan

    3)   Disaster Service Workers: California Government Code Section 3100 ceceres that public
         employees are disaster services workers, subject to such disaster service activities as may be
         assigned to them by the superiors or by law. The term public employees include all persons
         employed by the state or any county, city, city & county, state agency or public district,
         excluding aliens legally employed. This law applies to public school employees in the following
         cases:

              a) When a local emergency has been proclaimed,
              b) When a slate of emergency has been proclaimed, or
              c) When a federal disaster declaration has been made.

         This law has two ramifications:

         a) Public school employees may be pressed into service as Disaster Service Workers by
            their superiors, and may be asked to do jobs other than their usual duties for period of time
            exceeding their normal working hours; and
         b) In those cases, their Worker's Compensation Coverage becomes the responsibility of the
            state government. Their overtime pay, however, is paid by the school. These
            circumstances apply only when a local or state emergency has been declared.

    4.   Post-Disaster Shelters: SChools are required by both federal statute and state regulation to be
         available for shelters follOWinga disaster. The American Red Cross has access to schools in
         damaged areas to set up their mass care facilities, and local governments have a right to use
         schools for the same purposes. This requires close cooperation between school officials and
         the ARC or local government representatives; and should be planned and arranged for in
         advanced.
    5.   The Field Act: The Field Act-and subsequent related acts, the Garrison Act and Riley Act set
         the building code standard for construction and remodeling of public schools, and assign
         responsibility for assuring building code compliance to the Division of the State Architect
         (DSA), a engineer or a structural engineer licensed in California evaluate the buildings prior to
         the opening of the school for nsuucnon after an earthquake.
    6.   State Department of Education: The DSA is the building department for public schools, and
         has the legal responsibility for determining the safety of school buildings for use as eassrccms
         after an earthquake. The DSA requires all schools with damage have either a DSA engineer
         or a structural engineer licensed in California evaluate the buildings prior to the opening of the
         school for instructions after an earthquake.
    7.   State Department of Education: Through Management Advisories, the California Department
         of Education makes and clarifies policies related to disasters and emergency preparedness.
         The Hughes Bill requires each school has a comprehensive school safety plan. The
         Education Code reads: "The comprehensive school safety plan shall .... identify appropriate
         strategies and programs that will provide or maintain a high level of school safety and address
         the school's procedures for compliance with existing laws related to school safety, which will
         include the development of ....disaster procedures, routine and emergency."

The Board of Education recognizes that students and staff have the right 10a safe and secure campus
where they are free from physical and psychological harm, The Board is fully committed 10maximizing
school safety and to creating a positive learning environment thai teaches strategies for violence
prevention and emphasizes high expectations for student conduct, responsible behavior, and respect
for others.

 This comprehensive districtwkte safety plan identifies major safety concerns as well as the districts
 goals and priorities for safe schools. To summarize, this document contains the requirements set
 forth in Education Code Section 32280-32289 (SB 187 - California Comprehensive School Satety
 Pian):

   •     Assessment of current status of school crime


                                                                                                      2.

   •   Child Abuse reporting procedures pursuant to PC 11164 et seq
   •   Disaster procedures, routinq and emergency
   •   Policies related to suspension, expulsion or mandatory expulsion and other school-designated
       serious acts which would lead to suspension or expulsion
   •   NoUfication procedures to teachers regarding dangerous students (pursuant to EC 49079
   •   Sexual Harassment Policy
   •   Provisions for school-wide dress codes
   •   Safe ingress and egress procedures for pupils, parents, and schooi employees to and from
       school
   •   Safe and orderly school environment
   •   Discipline and behavior rules and procedures pursuant to EC 35291 and EC 35291.5
   •   Results of public meetings pertainin9 to school safety

A Comprehensive School Safety Plan brin9s together all of the elements of school safety, some of
which have existed for quite some time, It makes them accessible to everyone involved (District Office,
School Sites, Parents, and Communities.) It also forces a review, evaluation and amendment process
on a yearty basis.


At the end of the 1997 legislative session, the California Legislature enacted Senate Bill 187
(Chapter 736, Hughes, Comprehensive Schooi Safety Plans. S8 187 makes schooi districts
and county orrces of education (COE) responsible for the development of "comprehensive
school safety plans" in each of the schools for which the district or CaE is responsible.

        The State Leplslalure's intent in enacting S6 187 was to: " ... unite all
        existing statutes that relate to school safety and ensure compliance with
        their provisions by including the requirements of school safety provisions
        in each school's comprehensive school safety plan." S8 187 then lists (In
        Education Code sections 32280-32289) the required elements of this
        comprehensive school safety plan.
Placing school safety procedures and policies together in one plan as required by
S8 187 has the great benefit of allowing school administrators to ensure that this vital
learning support element Is fully in place. In addition, developing this comprehensive
school safety plan provides the opportunity to fulfill the requirements of the Improving
America's Schools Act, Title IV to conduct an objective analysis of drug and violence
problems in schools and to set measurable goals for dealing with those problems.
Also very closely related to the development of the comprehensive school safety plan is
the data from the California Safe Schools Assessment (CSSA). Although CSSA is not
explicitly mentioned in S8 187, it is recommended that the data collected through CSSA
as part of the assessment of the "current status of school crime" as well as for part of the
objective analyses required by Title IV. Given that CSSA is integral to planning for safe
schools, it may be useful to maintain local policies and procedures relating to CSSA with
the comprehensive school safety plan.

                                       SECTION 32280-32289




SECTION 32280.

11is the intent of the Legislature that all California public schools, in kindergarten, and grades 1 to
12, inclusive, operated by school districts, in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies,
community leaders, parents, pupils, teachers, administrators, and other persons who may be
interested in the prevention of campus crime and violence, develop a comprehensive school
safety plan that addresses the safety concerns identified through a systematic planning process.
For the purposes of this section, law enforcement agencies include local police departments,
county sheriffs' offices, school district police or security departments, probation departments, and
district attorneys' offices. For purposes of this section, a "safety plan" means a plan to develop
strategies aimed at the prevention of, and education about, potential incidents involving crime and
violence on the school campus.

SECTION 32281.

  (a) Each school district and county office of education is responsible for the overall
development of all comprehensive school safety plans for its schools operating kindergarten or
any of grades 1 to 12, inclusive.

  (b) (1) Except as provided in subdivision (d) with regard to a small school district, the school site
council established pursuant to Section 52012 or 52852 shall write and develop a comprehensive
school safety plan reievantto the needs and resources of that particular school.

  (2) The school site council may delegate this responsibility to a school safety planning
committee made up of the following members:

  (A) The principal or the principal's designee.

  (B) One teacher who is a representative of the recognized certificated employee organization.

  (C) One parent whose child attends the school.

  (0) One classified employee who is a representative of the recognized classified employee
organization.

  (E) Other members, if desired.

  (3) The school site council shall consult with a representative from a law enforcement agency in
the writing and development of the comprehensive school safety plan.

  (4) In the absence of a school site council, the members specified In paragraph (2) shall serve
as the school safety planning committee.

  (c) Nothing in this article shall limit or take away the authority of school boards as guaranteed
under this code.

  (d) (1) Subdivision (b) shall not apply to a small school district, as defined In paragraph (2), if
the small school district develops a district-wide comprehensive school safety plan that is
applicable to each school site.


                                                                                                    29

                           2008-2009 Comprehensive School Safety Plan

  (2) As used in this article, "small school district" means a school district that has fewer than
2,501 units of average daily attendance at the beginning of each fiscal year.

  (e) (1) When a principal or his or her designee verifies through local law enforcement officials
that a report has been filed of the occurrence of a violent crime on the school site of an
elementary or secondary school at which he or she is the principal,the principal or the principal's
designee may send to each pupil's parent or legal guardian and each school employee a written
notice of the occurrence and general nature of the crime. If the principal or his or her designee
chooses to send the written notice, the Legislature encourages the notice be sent no later than
the end of business on the second regular work day after the verification. If, at the time of
verification, iocallaw enforcement officials determine that notification of the violent crime would
hinder an ongoing investigation, the notification authorized by this subdivision shall be made
within a reasonable period of time, to be determined by the local law enforcement agency and the

Reporting Act (CANRA), which is part of the Penal Code. This act defines what is meant by
the terms "abuse" and "neglect," and it requires certain categories of people who routinely work
with children to report their suspicion that abuse has occurred. (The term "abuse" is at times
used to encompass all types of child abuse and neglect.)

CANRA designates the agencies that must receive and investigate reports of child abuse and
neglect, generally social services and law enforcement agencies. State and local agencies are
required to cross-report and set up mechanisms for sharing information. CANRA also states, "In
any investigation of suspected child abuse, all persons participating in the investigation of the
case shall consider the needs of the child victim and shall do whatever is necessary to prevent
psychological harm to the child victim. "(Penal Code IIIM.b)

The California Department of Justice maintains a statewide index called the Child Abuse Central
Index (CACI), which contains information from all reports of physical abuse, sexual abuse, and
severe neglect investigations in which the allegations were not determined to be unfounded.

                                              Mandated Reporters
                                              Professionals who work with or regularly come into
                                              contact with children have a crucial role in their
                                              protection. Mandated reporters are designated as such
                                              because they are in a position to receive information
                                              that a child is or may be at risk, and to pass this
                                              information on to the agencies that can intervene to
                                              protect the child. People who must make a Suspected
                                              Child Abuse Report include any child care custodian,
                                              health practitioner, employee of a child protective
agency, child visitation monitor, firefighter, animal control officer, humane society officer,
commercial film and photographic print processor, or clergy member, "who has knowledge of or
observes a child, in his or her professional capacity or within the scope of his or her employment,
whom he or she knows or reasonably suspects has been the victim of child abuse."

CANRA describes the process of submitting a report and sets penalties for mandated reporters
who fail to report. It also protects the confidentiality of the information in the report and protects
mandated reporters from civil and criminal liability. In addition, CANRA states that reporting
duties are "individual, and no supervisor or administrator may impede or inhibit the reporting
duties, and no person making a report shall be subject to any sanction for making the report."
Agencies and schools may establish internal procedures to facilitate reporting and apprise
supervisors and administrators of reports, hut cannot require any employee mandated to make
reports to disclose his or her identity to the employer.
Because the duty to report is individual, reporting the information regarding a case of possible
child abuse or neglect to an employer, supervisor, school principal, school counselor, co-worker,
or other person is not a substitute for making a mandated report to an appropriate agency.
However, if two or more persons have knowledge and agree, a single report may be-made.

Mandatory reporting is based on our societal duty to protect children and the recognition that
without these guidelines and regulations, far fewer children and families would be given the
intervention services needed. Protecting the identified child may also provide the opportunity to
protect other children in the home. It is equally important to provide help for the parents, who
may be unable to ask for help directly. The report of abuse may be a catalyst for bringing about
change in the home environment, which may in turn lower the risk of abuse in the home.

Non-Mandated Reporters
A non-mandated reporter is any person who has knowledge of, observes, or reasonably suspects
abuse and reports it without being obligated to do so. Non-mandated reporters may report
anonymously, and there is no penalty for not reporting. When you have a suspicion of abuse or
neglect of a child, but you are not within your professional
capacity as a mandated reporter. for instance, you witness
an incident in your neighborhood - you are a non-mandated
reporter. Non-mandated reports constitute a significant
number of the reports received by child protection and law
enforcement agencies.

The identity of all reporters, mandated or non-
mandated, is confidential information and may only be
revealed according to the standards set forth in
CANRA.

Reasonable Suspicion
Reasonable suspicion is the standard mandated reporters must use in deciding whether they
should make a report to a child protection agency. According to CANRA, "reasonable
suspicion" means that it is objectively reasonable for a person in a similar position, drawing on
the facts of the case and his/her training and experience, to suspect child abuse or neglect. It
does not mean the mandated reporter is responsible for confirming his or her suspicions before
making a report, only that someone else in his or her position could draw the same conclusion
based on the information available.
            MAKING A SUSPECTED CHILD ABUSE REPORT
A child abuse report from a mandated reporter has two components. First, you must make a
report immediately or as soon as practically possible by telephone. Then, within 36 hours of
receiving the information concerning the incident, you must prepare and send a written report on
the Suspected Child Abuse Report Form (PCll166) to the agency to which you made the report.
(These forms may be requested from Children and Family Services by calling (510) 670-9794,
and it is advisable to keep several blank ones on file so they are available when needed.)
To make a report, you may call either the 24-hour child abuse reporting hotline for Alameda
County at (510) 259-1800 or the local law enforcement agency having jurisdiction. Incidents or
issues involving a non-relative perpetrator, when there is no suspicion of parental non-protection,
are typically investigated by the police and may be directly reported to the law enforcement
jurisdiction where the crime took place.
                         The following information is recorded on the Suspected Child Abuse
                         Report Form: the name, business address, and telephone number of the
                         mandated reporter, and the capacity that makes the person a mandated
                         reporter; the child's name and address, present location, and, where
                         applicable, school, grade, and class; the names, addresses, and telephone
                         numbers of the child's parents or guardians; the information that gave
                         rise to the reasonable suspicion of child abuse or neglect and the source
                         or sources of that information; and the name, address, telephone
                         number, and other relevant personal information about the person or
                         persons who might have abused or neglected the child. The mandated
                         reporter must make a report even if some of this information is not
                         known or is uncertain to him or her.

                         A common error is to send in the form without calling in the report, or
                         to wait until the form is filled out and approved by a principal or
                         supervisor before making the call. This inadvertently places the
mandated reporter in violation. It also may impede the ability of an investigator to interview a
child in a timely manner or document injuries that substantiate the allegations.


              WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A REPORT IS MADE?
In Alameda County, when a reporter calls the Emergency Response hotline the information is
taken by a Child Welfare Worker in the Screening Unit, who prepares a face sheet, narrative, and
any history of previous referrals or CPS involvement available on the family or child. A
supervisor reviews the information and makes the determination of whether an in-person
investigation is required. When the infonnation given does not meet the criteria for child abuse
or neglect at the present time, the report is "screened out," and there is no in-person investigation.
In this case, the information in the report is kept on file and is accessible to other county child
welfare and law enforcement agencies.

If an in-person investigation is determined to be necessary, a response time will be determined,
and the investigation will be assigned to an Emergency Response field worker. The two
response times are "immediate" or "within 10 days," depending on the immediacy of the risk
presented by the information in the report. As a mandated reporter, you are entitled to know
whether or not the referral has been assigned for investigation, and you may call back to request
this information.

Meanwhile, agencies are responsible for cross-reporting to each other information received about
suspected child abuse. Emergency Response Workers and law enforcement will often work
together, although their investigations will be separate. When abuse has occurred within a
family, the Child Welfare Worker's emphasis is to ensure
the safety of the child and provide services to keep the
family together.

In attempting to ascertain the level of risk, the
Emergency Response Worker will usually first attempt to
talk with the child named in the referral about the
concerns, then with other children in the family, and then
parents or caregivers. Interviews with children are done
in the school environment whenever possible.

Children are removed from the home when they cannot remain there safely. With reasonable
cause, a peace officer may take a child into temporary custody without a warrant while a
situation is being investigated. Children are usually taken to an emergency foster home initially,
but are placed with a suitable relative whenever possible. When a child comes into custody, the
case is transferred to Dependency Investigations, and a new worker is assigned to continue the
investigation and file reports with the court.

At the conclusion of the investigation, a disposition is assigned to the report.
    -s'Lrnfounded report" means a report which is determined by the investigator to be false, to
    be inherently improbable, to involve an accidental injury, or not to constitute child abuse or
    neglect, as defined in Section 11165.6.
    """,*"Substantiatedreport" means a report which is determined by the investigator, based upon
    some credible evidence, to constitute child abuse or neglect, as defined in Section 11165.6.
    -evlnconclusive report" means a report which is determined by the investigator who
    conducted the investigation not to be unfounded, but in which the findings are inconclusive
    and there is insufficient evidence to determine whether child abuse or neglect, as defined in
    Section 11165.6, has occurred.

After the final disposition, the agency will inform a mandated reporter by mail of the results of
the investigation and any action the agency is taking with regard to the child or family.
                            WHAT MUST BE REPORTED
Knowledge or reasonable suspicion of the following MUST he reported to a child protection
agency, no matter where they occur.

Child Neglect is the negligent treatment or maltreatment of a child by a person responsible for
the child's welfare under circumstances indicating harm or threatened harm to the child's health
or welfare. The term includes both acts and omissions on the part of the responsible person.

    1. "Severe neglect" means the negligent failure of a person having
       the care or custody of a child to protect the child from severe
       malnutrition or medically diagnosed nonorganic failure to thrive.
       Also those situations where any person having the care or custody
       of a child willfully causes or permits the person or health of the
       child to be placed in a situation such that his or her person or
       health is endangered, including the intentional failure to provide
       adequate food, clothing, shelter or medical care.

   2. "General neglect" means the negligent failure of a person having
      the care or custody of a child to provide adequate food, clothing,
      shelter, medical care, or supervision where no physical injury to
      the child has occurred.


Child Abuse is a broad term which includes the following: physical injury which is inflicted
by other than accidental means on a child by another person; sexual abuse; willful cruelty or
unjustifiable punishment of a child; and unlawful corporal punishment or injury. It also includes
neglect ofa child or abuse in out of home care.

There are three types of non-accidental injuries that do not need to be reported: physical injuries
incurred during "mutual affrays between minors"; those caused by reasonable and necessary use
of force by a public school employee to stop a disturbance threatening injury or property
damage, for self-defense, or to obtain dangerous objects in a pupil's possession; and those caused
by reasonable and necessary force by peace officer acting in the scope of his or her employment.

Unlawful Corporal Punishment or Injurv. also called physical abuse, is the willful
infliction of cruel or inhuman corporal punishment or injury resulting in a trawnatic physical
condition. Corporal punishment. or physical discipline, is not in and of itself child abuse, and a
non-injurious spanking to the buttocks is not prohibited by law. However. when parents or
caretakers use corporal punishment with sufficient force to cause internal or external injuries,
this is child abuse. When parents who are out of control use corporal punishment, or when
instruments (including closed fists, belts, spoons, and cords) are used to hit children, the chances
of causing injury are greatly increased.
Willful Cruelty or Unjustifiable Punishment
ofa Child is when any person willfully causes or
permits any child to suffer or inflicts unjustifiable
physical pain or mental suffering, or if the person
having the care or custody of any child willfully
causes or permits the child or their health to be
placed in an endangering situation.

Any mandated reporter who has knowledge of or
who reasonably suspects that mental suffering has
been inflicted upon a child or that his or her
emotional well-being is endangered in any other way
may report this. However, these reports are not mandated.

Sexual Abuse       includes sexual assault or sexual exploitation.
Conduct described as "sexual assault" can include, but is not limited to, the following:
Any penetration, however slight, of the vagina or anal opening of one person by the penis of
another person, whether or not there is the emission of semen; any sexual contact between the
genitals or anal opening of one person and the mouth or tongue of another person, any intrusion
by one person into the genitals or anal opening of another person, including the use of any object
for this purpose, except when performed for a valid medical purpose; the intentional touching of
the genitals or intimate parts (including the breasts, genital area, groin, inner thighs and buttocks)
or the clothing covering them, of a child, for purposes of sexual arousal or gratification, except
acts which may reasonably be construed to be normal caretaker responsibilities; and the
intentional masturbation of the perpetrator's genitals in the presence of a child.

In addition, as of January 1, 1998, AB 327 amended the California Child Abuse and
Neglect Reporting Act to add the following to the class of sexual assault crimes that require
mandatory reporting:
- Unlawful sexual intercourse (statutory rape) with a child under the age of 16 years when the
        perpetrator is over the age of21 years.
~ Lewd and lascivious acts with children ages 14 or 15 by a perpetrator who is more than 10
        years older than the victim.

The bill's authors presented the following rationales for these changes:
1.      Research reveals that many teenage girls are being sexually exploited and impregnated by
        adult men. Two thirds of births to teenage girls nationwide are fathered by men age 20
        and older.
2.      In California, men age 20 or older are responsible for five times more births among
        juniors high girls than boys in their peer group. Alameda County is one of the counties
        with the highest incidence of infants born to minor mothers being fathered by adult men.

"Sexual exploitation" can include, but is not limited to, prostitution of a child and depicting a
minor engaged in obscene acts for purposes of preparing a film, photograph, negative, slide,
drawing, painting, or other pictorial depiction.
                    A FEW MORE THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND ...
1. The term child refers to any person under the age of 18.

2. Privileged communication (physician-patient, therapist-client) DOES NOT APPLY.
   The statutory duty to report supersedes confidentiality when there is reasonable
   suspicion of child abuse or neglect. There is no civil or criminal liability for
   reporting if you are a mandated reporter. If you are a non-mandated reporter,
   there is no liability unless it is proven that the report was false.

3. Failure to report by telephone or as soon as practically possible and in writing
   within 36 hours is a misdemeanor punishable by confinement in a county jail for
   a term not to exceed six months, by a fine of not more than $1000.00, or by
   both. There is also the possibility of civil liability for failure to report.

                            4. Representatives of child protection agencies may
                               interview suspected victims of child abuse on school
                               premises. The child may be interviewed in private or
                               select an adult to lend support. However, the
                               member of the staff so elected shall not participate in
                               the interview or discuss the facts or circumstances of
                               the case with the child and is subject to the
                               confidentiality requirements of CANRA.

5. Skeletal x-rays for diagnosis and photographs of injuries may be taken without
   parental permission.

6. If two or more mandated reporters jointly become aware of a known or
   suspected instance of child abuse, they may, by mutual agreement, designate
   one of themselves to make the required telephone and written reports.
   However if a mandated reporter becomes aware that the designated individual
   failed to report, he or she must then report.

7. Pregnancy of a minor is not considered in and of itself to constitute the basis of
   a reasonable suspicion of sexual abuse.

8. Maternal substance abuse and positive toxicology screening at the time an infant
   is delivered is not in and of itself a sufficient basis for reporting child abuse or
   neglect. However, any indication of maternal substance abuse should lead to an
   assessment by the health care provider of other factors present that indicate a
   risk to the child.

9. A child receiving treatment by spiritual means as provided in section 16509.1 of
   the Welfare and Institutions Code or not receiving specified medical treatment
   for religious reasons, shall not for the reason alone be considered a neglected
   child. An informed and appropriate medical decision made by parent or guardian
   after consultation with a physician or physicians who have examined the minor
   does not constitute neglect.
                          Child Abuse Reporting:
                         Frequently Asked Questions
Adapted from "The California Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Law: Issues and Answers for
Mandated Reporters" Pub 132 (1/00) California Department of Social Services, Office of Child Abuse
Prevention, p. 17-20.

    1. Who am I to say what is abusive?
       Professionals often feel reluctant to label behavior as abusive. They may feel
       they have no right to pass judgment on other people. However, if a
       reasonable suspicion exists, the protection of the child and compliance with
       the law must take precedence over these concerns. This protective action is
       beneficial to the parents as well, who may not recognize their behavior as
       abusive, or may be reluctant to seek help.

    2. What is the fin~ line between abuse and discipline?
       If the discipline is excessive or forceful enough to leave injuries, physical
       abuse has occurred. The use of instruments increases the likelihood of
       injuries, as does the excessive punishment of young children. The intent of
       the reporting law is not to interfere with appropriate parental discipline, but
       to respond to extreme or inappropriate discipline which is abusive. Some
       parents hit their children in places where injuries are not visible (the
       buttocks, the thighs, the back) and yet may tell the mandated reporter that
       they use belts, Whips or other potentially dangerous instruments.      If a
       mandated reporter has reasonable suspicion of abuse, even with no visible
       signs, you are required to report. Under California Welfare and Institutions
       Code Section 300(a}, reasonable and age appropriate spanking to the
       buttocks where there is no evidence of serious physical injury does not
       constitute abuse.

    3. What if abuse occurred in the past?
       There is no time limitation regarding the reporting of child
       abuse. If a victim is still under age 18, the abuse must be
       reported.

    4. What if an adult states he or she was abused as a
       child?
       The child abuse reporting law mandates a report when there
       is a reasonable suspicion or knowledge that minors may be in
       need of protection. Therefore, childhood abuse of adults
       should be reported if there is a reasonable suspicion that
       there may be another child victim.

    5. At what age is a child most at risk of abuse?
       All children are at risk of abuse, but infants and toddlers are most likely to
       sustain serious injuries due to their fragility. The mortality rate is highest for
       children 0-2. Some people are predisposed to incorrect ideas about abuse,
       depending on the age of the child. For example, sexual abuse of infants is
       more difficult to fathom than sexual abuse of an older child, yet it does
      occur. Adolescents are also at risk of abuse but may not receive needed help
      because they may be thought to provoke the abuse or to be better able to
      protect themselves or run away from abusive situations.    Despite their age
      and size, adolescents are often just as vulnerable as younger children to
      physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect.

   6. At what age can children legally be left alone?
      There is no law which states the age when children can be left alone, nor is
      there any law which specifies a minimum age for a caretaker. Good
      judgment on the part of the parents is expected. The ages, number of
      children, their maturity, the length of time in question, cultural factors and
      other characteristics would be considered.

   7. Are clergy      mandated to report?
      Yes. Clergy     are legally mandated reporters, and are exempt only if the
      knowledge      or reasonable suspicion of child abuse was obtained during a
      "penitential    communication,"   e.g. sacramental confession.

   8. Is a mandated reporter "on duty" 24 hours a day and required to
      make reports on family, neighbors or friends?
                                    •                  In California the mandated
                                                       reporting law specifically states
                                                       that reporting is required when
                                                       the reporter has knowledge of
                                                       or observes child abuse in his
                                                       or her professional capacity or
                                                       within the scope of his or her
                                                       employment. A report is not
                                                       required when information is
                                                       obtained through a personal
                                                       relationship. However,
      professionals with any knowledge of child abuse or neglect should examine
      their moral and ethical responsibilities to their community and its children
      when making such a decision.

9.May reports be made anonymously?
Mandated reporters must identify themselves when making child abuse reports.
Persons not legally required to report may make anonymous reports.

lO.Should I inform the family that I have made a child abuse report?
There is no law or regulation regarding this, and good professional judgment should
be used. If a child is in imminent danger and the perpetrator has access to the
child, it is better not to advise anyone in the family so that the child is not coerced
or instructed to retract the disclosure.

Section 5: Disaster/Emergency/Crisis Response Procedures
Responsibilities for a School Disaster Plan


Everyone at a school will have some responsibilities in an
emergency based on their job, and some people will have additional
responsibilities. Below is a short discussion of how the Standard
Emergency Management System (SEMS) and the Incident
Command System (ICS) can be adapted to your school.

 Major Concepts and Components

          Every emergency, no matter how large or small, requires that certain tasks be performed.
          In SEMS, these tasks are called Management, Planning, Operations, Logistics, and
          Finance/Administration.

          SEMS can be expanded or reduced, depending on the enuanon and the immediate
          needs. One person can do more than one function.

          Every incident needs a person in charge.      In SEMS and ICS, this person is called the
          Incident Commander.

          No one person should be in charge of more than seven people (the optimum number is
          five). This does not apply to the Student Supervtslon Team under Logistics, however.

Common terminology:

          All teachers and staff in the school should use the same words to refer to the same
          actions. The terminology should be known before a disaster. SEMS is a system that,
          lNhen used properly, affords common terminoiogy.

          If the fire department or other responding agencies come on campus, they will coordinate
          better with the site's command structure if similar situations and actions are described wIth

How ICS Functions

       All sites use ICS as a basis for their organizational structure. The District Emergency Plan
       contains detailed response and management procedures for all personnel at the District
       Office.

       At the school site, one person is in charge - the Incident Commander -, and the
       Emergency Operations Director is in charge etme District Level. These top-level persons
       work closely with the Public Informalion Officer at the District Emergency Operations
       Genter, the Liaison Officer, the Safety Officer, and the section officers.

       A Section Officer oversees and coordinates the activities of each of the four functions:
       Operations, Planning/Intelligence, Logistics, Finance/Administration.

       Everyone should know lhis chain of command, and should be trained to      frt. into it in one of
       various places.

Using the Recommended Site Plan Template

       The Katz Act (California Education Code, Sections 35295-35297), requires that schools
       have a sje disaster plan that ouUines roles, responsibilities, and procedures for students
       and staff. it also requires that the school site emergency management organizational
       structure complies with SEMS, and be ready for implementation at all times.

       To reduce the burden of developing and updating individual disaster plans, and to provide
       standardization, this Recommended Site Plan Template is available for each school to
       adopt, with a minimum of effort. This, in no way, is meant to limit what is contained in Site
       Plans, but serves as a gUide outlining minimum requirements for compiiance.



Building Site Emergency Operations Teams

       In building your site emergency operations teams, please be aware that roles can be
       combined especially with sites with smaller staff such as an elementary schooL For
       example, the principal/site administrator and their back-ups of an elementary school
       consisting of 10-15 teachers/staff members can cover the roles of incident commander,
       public infonnation officer and liaison.    During normal operations, the principal/site
       administrator is the indiVidual managing and responsible for the site therefore making this
       a logical assignment.

       Middle and high schools have larger populations to manage, therefore, it is recommended
       that each role have designed individuals assigned to the task.

       Also, since it is unknown as to how long of a duration an emergency/disaster may last, it is
       appropriate for each role to have at least three people assigned. Each person covers an 8-
       hour period in a 24 hour day. This is done to enable each person to have a break to rest
       during an emergency/disaster event. When rested, individuals can make decisions with a
       clear mind.




                                                                                               41

First Things First
Preparing your school for emergencies starts with staff
preparedness. The backbone of school planning is dependent on
the staff's willingness to stay at school during a major community
emergency. Personal preparedness makes this much easier.

 Each staff member

 Needs to prepare their family and home for earthquakes and other emergencies

          o   A 72~hour supply kit for the home

          o   A Car Kit

          o   To develop a plan to reunite with their family

          o   A neighborhood preparedness program

 Preparedness Brochures are available from the local Chapter of the American Red
 Cross, phone number (510) 595.04400, or the Alameda County Office of Emergency
 Services, phone number (925) 803·7878.

 If the disaster occurs during school time, Emergency Management recommends the
 child stay at school until the parent or a trusted friend (see Emergency Cards) picks
 up the child. We have no idea, especially in an earthquake, how impacted our
 neighborhoods may be.

 This means the school staff will need to stay with the children. You can only do this
 if you are prepared at home! You must feel that your family can activate your
 Family Plan without you.


Establishing hUddy teachers

 When a teacher has been designated a role on the school site emergency
 operations team, he/she will turn over supervision of his/her students to a buddy
 teacher after evacuation of the site has been completed and attendance is taken.

 The buddy teacher usually teaches the same grade level as the teacher who turned
 his/her students over to the buddy teacher.

TRIAGE GUIDELINES
Triage is defined as the sotting of patients into categories of priority for care based on
injuries and medical emergencies. This process is used at the scene of multiple-
victim disasters and emergencies when there are more victims than there are
rescuers trained in emergency care.

Incidents that involve large numbers of casualties, and have a delay in the response
time of emergency medical services, require a special form of triage. The modified
triage system that is in most common use is the STA.RT. (Simple Triage And
Rapid Treatment) Plan. In this plan, patients are triaged into very broad categories
that are based on the need for treatment and the chances of survival under the
circumstances of the disaster. These categories are listed below:




          1. Airway and breathing difficulties
          2. Cardiac arrest
          3. Uncontrolled or suspected severe bleeding
          4. Severe head injuries
          5. Severe medical problems
          6. Open chest or abdominal wounds
          7. Severe shock

                        Second Priority - YELLOW TAG
          1. Burns
          2. Major multiple fractures
          3. Back injuries with or without spinal cord damage




          2. Obviously mortal wounds where death appears reasonably
             certain
          3. Obviously deceased



                                                                                       85

S.T.A.R.T. Plan Triage Checklist
Simple Triage And Rapid Transport
This method allows rapid identification of those patients who are at greatest risk
for early death, and the provision for basic Iife.sa.vingstabilization techniques.


Initial contact

       o   Identify self, and direct all patients who can walk to gather and remain in a safe place. Tag
           these people GREEN

       o   Begin evaluating the non-ambulatory         patients where they are lying.
Assess respiration (nonnal, rapid, absent)

       o   If absent, open airway to see if breathing begins

       o   If not breathing, tag BLACK (dead) DO NOT PERFORM               CPR

       o   If patient needs assistance to maintain open airway, or respiratory rate is greater than 30
           per minute, tag RED (attempt to use a bystander to hold airway open)

       o   If respiration is normal, go to next step
Assess perfusion (pulse, bleeding)

       o   Use the capillary refill test to check radial (wrist) pulse

       o   If capillary refill test is greater than 2 seconds, or radial pulse is absent, tag RED

       o   If capillary refill is less than 2 seconds, or radial pulse is present, go to next step.

       o   Any life threatening bleeding should be controlled at this time, and if possible, raise
           patient's legs to treat for shock (attempt to use a bystander to hold pressure/bleeding
           control]
Assess Mental Status (commands, movement)

       o   Use simple commands/tasks       to assess

    INFECTION CONTROL GUIDELINES
    FOR PROTECTION OF HIV TRANSMISSION IN FIRST AID
    SITUATIONS


,
    Hand washing

    Hand washing is the single most effective means of preventing the spread of
    infection. Hand washing procedures should be followed even if gloves have been
    worn. If an emergency situation precludes proper hand washing, the hands
    should be washed as soon as possible after exposure.

    Any skin surface that comes into contact with blood or other body fluids should be
    cleansed using the same procedures used for hands. Hands should be washed:

           •         Before and after contact with a patient.

           •         Before and after touching open wounds (even if gloves are worn).

           •         Before eating.

           •         After any direct exposure to blood or other body fluids.

           •         After removing gloves.

           •         After handling soiled or contaminated items and equipment.

           •         After using the toilet.

    'Tbe correct method used for hand cleaning and decontamination              is with soap
    and water:

                 u   Wet hands.
               Cl    Lather hands with either bar soap or liquid soap.
               Cl    Rub repeatedly for at least 15 seconds.
               Cl    Rinse.
               CI    Turn faucets off using a dry paper towel.
               CI    Dry hands properly
               CI    Dispose of used paper towel in plastic bag.




                                                                                               87

                        2008--2009 Comprehensive School Safety Plan

In areas where running water is not readily available:


           o   Remove obvious soil with a wet toweletle.
           o   Use waterless foams or rinses to clean skin.



 Barrier Precautions



A medical history and examination cannot readily identify all patients infected with
HIV or other blood-borne organisms. Therefore, blood and other body fluid
precautions should be consistently used for all patients. These include patients at
first aid stations where the risk of exposure by blood is possible and where the
infectious status of the patient is usually unknown.

All health care workers should use the following banier precautions to prevent
exposure of skin and mucous membranes when contact with blood or any other
body fluids of any patient is anticipated:


           o   Disposable latex gloves (which do not have to be sterile) should be worn for touching
               blood or other body fluids (urine, stool, semen, infected wounds, vomit), mucous
               membranes, ornon-intact skin of all patients.

           o   Gloves should be changed between each patient.

           o   Hands and other skin surfaces should be washed immediately and thoroughly on
               contact w~h blood or other body fluids.

           o   Hands should be washed immediately after gloves are removed.

           o   Masks and protective eyewear or face shields should be worn during procedures that
               are likely to disperse droplets of blood or other body fluids, so that exposure of
               mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, and eyes is prevented.

           o   Gowns or aprons shouid be worn during procedures that are likely to generate
               splashes of blood or other body fluids.




                                                                                                 88

                        2008-2009 Comprehensive           School Safety Plan




  Rescue Breathing

There is no evidence that the HIVIAIDS virus is transmitted through contact with
saliva. However, pocket masks for all age groups should be available at first aid
stations for use whenever Rescue Breathing is administered. To use the pocket
mask, the first aid responder must have had previous instructions.

After resuscitation is complete, pocket masks, if used, should be thoroughly cleaned
and disinfected, or discarded if disposable.


 Eye Rinse

If the eye is splattered with blood or any other body fluid, it should be flushed
immediately with saline or water rinses. Goggles should be available for use in those
situations where splattering of blood is anticipated.


 Precautions to Prevent Injuries From Needles,                         Scissors,      and Other
 Sharp Instruments

All health care workers should take precautions to prevent injuries caused by
scissors, needles, lancets, and other sharp instruments during use and during
handling, cleaning, or disposal. Used needles and pointed instruments are the
medical instruments most frequently implicated in accidental exposure to blood-borne
diseases. Health care workers should:

           o   Be extremely   cerercr in handling   all scissors, needles, and sharp instruments.

          o    Minimize handling of such instruments.

          o    Not attempt to recap used needles or sharp instruments.

          o    Discard disposable needles, syringes, lancets, and sharp instruments as soon after
               use as possible in an impervious, closed container (hard plastic or metal can).

As a member of Ihe Utility/Fire Team, fire suppression may be one of your roles. Remember - you
will be unable to help anyone if your are injured through carelessness. Following is a list of safety
rules:
,/ Do not attempt to suppress a fire that is clearly too large for the equipment at hand.
,/ Use safety equipment, including all-leather gloves.
,/ Work in a buddy system. No one should ever attempt 10suppress a fire alone.
,/ Have a backup team. Unplanned events can occur when firefighting. Have backup available in
     case help is needed.
,/ f>Jwayshave two ways to exit the fire area.
,/ Approach smoke-filled areas cautiously.
,/ Feel closed doors wilh the back of the hand, working from the bottom of the door to the top. If the
     door is hoi, do not open it.
./ Confine the fire whenever possible by keeping doors closed.
,/ Stay low to the ground.
,/ Always know a second escape route.
,/ Use nalural ventilation to clear smoke.
,/ Maintain a safe distance from the fire. (Know your fire extinguisher's effective range.)
,/ Move around the perimeter of the fire to maximize coverage of the extinguishing agent.
,/ Overhaul to prevent rekindling of the fire.

  Utility Shut-Off

  Shutting off the Gas Meter Valve

  After determining that natural gas is leaking (smell, sound, fast meter dials), locate
  the gas meter. Check the gas valve to see if it is still open. Adjust the wrench on the
  valve for a snug fit. Turn the valve until it points across the pipe (perpendicular to the
  pipe direction). Check to see if the gas leak has stopped.

                     shut-off valve




                 .......
                       Have wrench stored in a specific: location

 Shutting off the Electricity


 After determining that an electrical problem exists, locate the electrical panel that
 controls the area. Ensure that the electrical control switches are not already in the
 "OFF" position. Sometimes a short circuit will shut off (pop) the switch to the "OFF"
 position. You don't want to turn it back "ON". Start with the small switches near the
 bottom and then turn off the main switch last. Ensure all switches are in the "OFF"
 position.

Student Emergency Card
I understand the Emergency Student Release Procedures.
I understand that various emergencies - loss of electrical power, wind/rain storms,
earthquakes - may preclude use of school transportation.
Therefore, when necessary during an emergency situation, my student,

                       &;
                        -'


{enter students full name)


May be released to any of the adults listed below.




Please print name and then sign              (Parent or Guardian)                      Date




In an emergency, my student may be released from school to the following
authorized adults:

             Please print. This list should include two emergency contacts listed on the other
             information given to the school. These adults may not initiate a release by phone.

Emergency Student Release Procedures

1. The Oakland Unified School District will keep and care for all students in an
   emergency situation (such as loss of electrical power, wind/rain storms,
   earthquakes, etc.) until the end of the school day or longer if the emergency
   dictates.

2. It should be noted that elementary students will not be sent home during normal
   school hours because of an emergency. However, in order to avert adverse
   affects on elementary level bus transportation, secondary students may be
   dismissed early.

3. Should conditions exist that make transportation impossible, students will be kept
   at school until the parent, guardian or an authorized adult comes to check the
   student out of school. In such conditions it is expected that parents/authorized
   adults will come as soon as possible to pick up their student(s).

4. If electrical power has not been disrupted, only high school parents/legal
   guardians may have their student(s) released, as per normal absence/release
   procedures.

5. In all situations, the superintendent may make other decisions dependent on the
   type of emergency. During any community-wide emergency, please listen to the
   radio for pertinent information.

6. Those who arrive during an emergency to check a student out of school will go
   through the designated release procedures: typically the school will record the
   time, student's name, and the name of adult to whole the student is being
   released and address or destination.

7. If the emergency situation does not extend beyond normal school hours, students
   will be released as usual at the end of the school day.

Opening an American Red Cross Shelter in
School Facilities
Ute time-frame necessary to accomplish all of the steps to establish a shelter
may vary from a few hours to several days. Ute goal is to respond to the needs
of the community within the first 2A hours following a catastrophic disaster.

When school property is used to establish an American Red Cross Emergency Shelter, the following
procedures can be expected to be followed:

.;'   Initial post-disaster survey of facilities to establish safety and suitability of them (see following
      pages "Pre-Planning for Establishing Shelter Sites" .

.;'   American Red Cross (ARC) personnel will obtain permission of the facility manager of Incident
      Commander to use the facilities .

.;'   A joint inventory of the facilities will be conducted by ARC personnel and school personnel.

../   ARC personnel will implement a pre-established shelter plan .

../   ARC personnel will register ali inhabitants of the shelter.

If the shelter is established wtlile school is in session and children are present, ARC will not interfere
with the implementation of the school's own disaster plan. The ARC shelter plan is not to replace plans
or abrogate the school's responsibility for the management and safety of school children.

If school children in the care of a teacher or school official require the services at a Red Cross shelter,
the teacher/school official will be acting in the place of a parent until the responsibility can be transferred
to an adult family member.

School employees will be expected to assist in the Red Cross shelter once they have met their
obligations to family and job emergency responsibilities.        Instructions and training for walk-in
(temporary) Red Cross Disaster volunteers will be available at the shelters.




                                                                                                           127

storing SUpplies
             After a disaster, it may not be possible to leave a facility, It also may not be.possjble for
             emergency responders to get to the facility. People may spend 24 hours or longer on
             the premises, without any material help from outsiders.

             Stocking supplies - first aid kits, water, tools, and food - in a secure place is therefore an
             important part of the facility preparedness plan. Assuring that those supplies are fresh and
             up-to-date is also crucial. It is a good idea to keep inventories of supplies and written
             records of where they are.

             It works well to assign the procurement, storage and maintenance of specific supplies          to
             the teams with those particular responsibilities after a disaster.


Basic Supplies
These are the very necessary basic supplies:

o Adequatefirstaidsupplies                                o   Enough
                                                                   liquids all
                                                                         for      ee peopleinthefacility

                                                              Space blankets regularblankets
o Extra fireextinguishers                                 o   Heavy dutyplasticbags
o Emergencyearch andrescue tools
              s                                           o            supplies
                                                              Sanitalion
o Ballery powered radiosand extra batteries               o         non-prescriplion
                                                              UsefiJl              drugs

Irs not necessary to procure everything at once, but facilities should try to accumulate supplies
incrementally. Priorities in acquiring supplies should correspond to which ones will be most important
immediately after the disaster and as time goes on. For example, first aid is more important than water,
and water is more important than food.



 Supply Acquisition            Checklist

 The following is a checklist facilities can use to acquire, store and maintain disaster response
 supplies:

o Using the attached master list of Equipment and Supplies by Team, determine which supplies are
    most critical, decide on needed quantities, and estimate costs.

o Using the attached   Basic FaCility Supplies and Suggested Emergency Supplies and Equipment,
    have each team meet and develop a plan for acquiring what is necessary. Assign particuiar
    procurement and storage responsibilities to team members.

o   Develop a schedule for each team to follow in acquiring the supplies, finding appropriate storage
    space for them, and checking and replenishing them periodically.

             Using the recommendation in Storing Foods, have every student bring in his or her own
             disaster kit containing suck foods as fruit leathers, granola bars, and canned juices.
             These kits can be stored in each classroom and could come in handy after a disaster such
             as an earthquake, when organized food provision has not yet gotten underway.

 Policies Related to Suspension, Expulsion, &
 Mandatory Expulsion
     BP 5144.1

 Suspension         & ExpulsionlDue           Process

 The Governing Board has established policies and standards of behavior in order to promote learning
 and protect the safety and well-being of all students. When these policies and standards are violated, it
 may be necessary to suspend or expel a student from regular classroom instruction.

 (cf. 5144 - Discipline)

 Suspended or expelled students shall be excluded from all school-related            extracurricular   activities
 during the period of suspension or expulsion.

 (ct. 6145 - Extracurricular   and Cocurricular Activities)

 Except where suspension for a first offense is warranted in accordance with law, suspension snen be
 imposed only when other means of correction fail to bring about proper conduct. (Education Code
 48900.5)

 Expulsion is an action taken by the Board for severe or prolonged breaches of discipline by a studenl.
 Except for single acts of a grave nature, expulsion is used only when there is a history of misconduct,
 when other forms of discipline, including suspension, have failed to bring about proper conduct, or
 when the student's presence causes a continuing danger to him/herself or others. (Education Code
 48915)

 The grounds for suspension and expulsion and the procedures for considering, recommending                     and/or
 implementing suspension and expulsion shall be specified in administrative regulation.

 Student    Due Process

 The Board does not support a zero tolerance approach. The Board shall provide for the fair and
 equitabie treatment of students facing suspension and expulsion by affording them their due process
 rights under the law. The Superintendent or designee shall complywilh procedures for notices and
 appeals as specified in administrative regulation and law. (Education Code 48911,48915,48915.5)

 (ct. 5119 - Students Expelled from Other Districts)
 (ct. 5144.2 - Suspension and Expulsion/Due Process (Individuals with Disabilities))

 On-Campus       Suspension     Program

                                                                                                                        167
                                OAKLAND UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
                             2008·2009 Comprehensive School Safety Plan



The Board recognizes that students who are suspended from SChool often have no supervision or
guidance during the school hours when they are off campus and may fall behind in the coursework.
The Board believes that it would be better to manage the students behavior by keeping the student at
school and providing him/her with supervision that is separated from the regular classroom.

The Superintendent or designee shall establish a supervised in-house suspension program which
meets the requirements of law for suspended students who pose no imminent danger or threat at
school and for whom an expulsion action has not been initiated.

The Superintendent or designee shall examine alternatives to off-campus suspension and may
establish a suspension program which involves progressive discipline during the school day on
campus; use of conferences between staff, parents/guardians and students; detention; student study
teams or other assessment-related teams; and/or referral to School support services staff. The use of
such alternatives does not preclude off-campus suspensions.

Required   Parental Attendance

The Board believes that parental involvement plays an important role in the resolution of classroom
behavior problems. The Board expects that teachers will communicate with parentsfguardians when
behavior problems arise.

Whenever a student is removed from a class because he/she committed an obscene act, engaged in
habitual profanity or vulgarity, disrupted school activities or otherwise willfully defied valid staff authority,
the teacher of the class from which the student was removed may provide that the student's
parentfguardian attend a portion of a school day in that class. After completing the classroom visit and
before leaving school premises, the parentfguardian also shall meet with the principal or designee.
(Education Code 48900.1)

The Board encourages teachers, before requiring parental attendance, to make reasonable efforts to
have the parentfguardian visit the class voluntarily. The teacher also may inform the parentfguardian
about available resources and parent education opportunities. Teachers should reserve the option of
required parental attendance for cases in which they have determined that it is the best strategy to
promote positive interaction between the student and the parentfguardian and to improve classroom
behavior.

The teacher shall apply this policy uniformly to all students within the classroom.      This policy shall apply
only to a parentfguardian who lives with the student. (Education Code 48900.1)

Parental attendance may be requested on the day the student returns to class or within one week
thereafter. The principal or designee shall contact any parents/guardians who do not respond to the
request to attend school. The Board recognizes that parental compliance with this policy may be
delayed, modified or prevented for reasons such as serious iIInessfinjuryfdisability, absence from town,
or inability to get release time from work.

District regulations and school-site rules for student discipline shall incJude procedures for implementing
parental attendance requirements.

Decision Not     to Enforce Expulsion Order

On a case-by-case basis, the enforcement        of an expulsion order may be suspended by the Board
pursuant to the requirements of law.

Section 10: School's Safe and Orderly Environment




Safe, Orderly, Drug-free Schools
The issue of school safety is a shared concern. Today, more than ever, it is essential that communities,
businesses, parents, and students work together to develop a disciplined environment where learning
can take place. Providing safe and drug-free schools is a cornerstone for achieving a world-class
education.

Most of all, creating safe and orderly schools is about commitment and community will. Accomplishing
such a goal requires families, schools, and community leaders to articulate the quality of the
educational environment they want to provide for youth and to collaboratively develop the strategies
that will produce the desired results. Achieving this significant objective requires school and community
leaders to assess where they are, plan where they want to be, implement a series of comprehensive
strategies to bridge the difference, and evaluate their progress.

             Essential ingredients for creating safe, orderly, drug-free schools include:

o   Placing school safety high on the educational agenda. Such a priority involves making a
    personal and community commitment toward creating a safe. welcoming, respectful, gun-free, and
    drug-free school.


o   Involving parents and citizens. No plan can succeed without the participation of parents and
    citizens in the community. Planners must make certain to bring these participants to the table often
    to shape strategies and programs together. Most people dislike having things "done to them."
    However, they enjoy being a part of planning, carrying out. and evaluating programs in which they
    have invested concern and time. Those affected by Safe School Plans should be involved
    throughout the entire process.


o Building    and developing the team. Making schools safe is a joint           responsibility, requiring a
    broad-based team and a working attitude emphasizing collaboration            and cooperation. Team
    members should include educators. parents, students, law enforcers.         community and business
    leaders, probation and court representatives, social service and health     care providers. and other
    youth-serving professionals.


o   Conducting the school site assessment. Team members should determine the specific issues
    and concerns that the local community believes are most important. This step begins the process
    of developing a meaningful Safe School Plan that will foster an increased level of community
    commitment.


o Reviewing     the law. The law is at the heart of every major school safety issue today. Laws are
    intended to articulate the reasonabie standards that define the delicate balance between student
    rights and student responsibilities. The law proclaims what must be done, implies what should be
    done, and establishes limits for what may be done. The law consuutes a code of professional
    expectations for school administrators and youth-serving professionals. As planning begins. school
    and community leaders should consult with the SChool district's attomeys to ensure that legal
    issues are appropriately addressed. Constitutionai issues, as well as other concerns ranging from




                                                                                                              201

    adequate liability insurance to the effective screening of volunteers,       may arise with the
    implementation of a comprehensive violence prevention program.

o   Creating a Safe School Plan. This is an action plan that not only Includes the substance of what
    is necessary to accomplish but also identifies the processes by which those goals will be achieved,
    including short-term objectives and long-term systemic changes. It is most important for team
    members to understand that they can make a positive difference in the quality of life for
    themselves, their community, and all the children they serve.

o Formulating      a contingency plan. Having a backup plan for handling emergencies and crises
    simply makes good sense. Such foresight can prevent a crisis and preclude successive crises
    while creating an effective mechanism for managing school problems.

o   Creating an educational climate. Team members should evaluate the current education
    atmosphere and propose modifications that will transform it into a safe, vibrant learning
    environment in which students and teachers respect each other.

o Searching    for ways to serve students and ways students can serve. Young people should
    always be included as part of the solution to the problems associated with juvenile delinquency.
    Actively engaging students in school and community projects and activities creates a level of
    ownership that supports the success of every child.

o   Getting the message out/communicating.        Working with the media may be one of the most
    successful strategies for building awareness of both the issues Involved and the progress being
    made. With simple newsletters, schools can share success stories and break down barriers with
    other districts and schools.

o   Evaluating progress. It is important to monitor activities, measure impact, and evaluate how the
    plan is working. A Safe School Plan should be modified and improved whenever necessary.

            These guidelines represent the beginning of a continuing team process to create safe
            schools for all of America's children. Making schools safe requires a total community effort
            within the context of a broad spectrum of opportunities. There are no simple solutions to
            making schools safe. Each school and each school district has Usown unique challenges
            and resources with which to address them.

    Bio Terrorism (Anthrax Threat)


 Manyfacilities in communities around the country have received anthrax threat letters. Most were
 empty envelopes; some have contained powdery substances. The purpose of these guidelines is to
 recommend procedures for handling such incidents.

    DO NOT PANIC

 Anthrax organisms can cause infection in the skin, gastrointestinal system, or the lungs. In order for
 this to happen, the organism must be rubbed into abraded skin, swallowed, or inhaled as a fine,
 aerosolized mist. Disease can be prevented after exposure to the anthrax spores by early treatment
 with the appropriate antibiotics. Anthrax is not spread from one person to another person.

 For anthrax to be effective as a covert agent, it must be aerosolized into velY small partides. This is
 difficult to do, and requires a great deal of technical skill and special equipment. If these small
 particles are inhaled, life-threatening lung infection can occur, but prompt recognition and treatment
 are effective.

D    If closure is ordered with no re-entry, when advised, release walkers and car/passengers (unless
     drivers are needed to evacuate students from the site) accounting for those who have left. Stay
     with bus riders until buses arrive.

o Advise students to cover mouth and nose with a damp cloth or handkerchief to protect from any
   airborne hazards.
o A school official (or student if no official present) should close all vents and turn off ventilation
   systems. The goal is to keep inside air in and outside air out. Air conditioners and heating systems
   bring outside air in,
a  Turn off all motors and fans. Still, non-moving air is best. Turn off anything that creates wind,
   generates extra heat, or could generate sparks.
a  Advise students to remain sheltered until the 'euoeer' signal is given by a school or local official.
a  Remove heavily contaminated clothing as soon as possible and place in a plastic bag, or some
   other container that can be sealed. The clothing bag should be given to the emergency
   responders for proper disposal.

Section 13: Hate Crime Reporting Procedures and Policies

Hate-motivated Behavior
Hate-motivated behavior is an important issue for everyone. If parents, students, school staff members,
and representatives of the local community know that you are serious about addressing hate crimes,
they will listen, learn, and participate in scheduled activities. Publicizing the school's commitment to hate-
crime prevention is the key to successfuliy involving everyone, Foilowing through with plans and
promises is the key to keeping all partners involved.



Parents

Parents need 10 model the appropriate behavior of respect for others and appreciation for diversity
throughout the lives of their chiidren. Parents should be encouraged to attend school-sponsored training
on hate-erime prevention and work with school personnel to implement plans designed to promote
acceptance and understanding.



Students

Students must take responsibility for their own behavior and meet the standards of conduct established
by their school site and society in general.



School-Site Staff

The school-site staffs, along with parents and community members, need to develop a plan for dealing
with hate-motivated behavior in accord with board policy and district guidelines. Staff members need to
receive training and materials necessary forthe success of the plan.



School District Administration

Administrators must provide leadership and support by developing and promoting guidelines which
schools can customize into action plans. Administrators need to embed workable strategies into these
gudellnes so that sites can effectively deal with hate-motivated incidents.



Goveming Boards

All governing boards have the responsibility to develop and support policies which inform every school
that the prevention of hate-motivated behavior and provision of victim assistance are required mandates.
Board policies addressing hate-motivated behavior in schools are critical to the success of safe school
strategies.



                                                                                                                 2>2

Law Enforcement Agencies

Law enforcement agencies should be part of the team by communicating clear policies and protocols for
deaiing with hate-motivated behavior and crime. Many agencies will provide, when appropriate, school
resource officers, training, victim assistance, presentations, and materials for dealing with hate-motivated
incidents.
Community

Community-based organizations, public servce agencies, serves clubs, senior centers, business
owners, and religious organizations are all part of the solution. Some service clubs and businesses make
it a priority to develop partnerships with schools. Many have national and mematonel resources, which
can help.
