Emergency Preparedness & Crisis Management

Crisis Management

Emergency preparedness is a critical responsibility for schools and is essential to providing a positive, healthy learning environment for students and staff. Minnesota State statute requires all schools to adopt a crisis management policy and develop school-specific plans that address emergency situations such as natural disasters, man-made disasters and school violence. While anyone would acknowledge the importance of emergency preparedness in schools, it is often unfamiliar to school officials, and its broad scope can leave a Superintendent, Principal or Facilities Director wondering where to begin.
