7:180 Prevention of and Response to Bullying, Intimidation, and Harassment
Bullying, intimidation, and harassment diminish a student's ability to learn and a school's ability to educate. Preventing students from engaging in these disruptive behaviors and providing all students equal access to a safe, non-hostile learning environment are important District goals.
A soft lockdown is primarily used in two different scenarios. The first is when conditions exist outside of the school building that could potentially present a threat to the safety of the students and staff. The second is a situation inside the building where the school or local emergency responders need to keep students and staff in their classrooms and away from an incident or activity. During a soft lockdown students and staff can continue normal classroom activities.
A hard lockdown is used when a serious/volatile situation exists that could jeopardize the safety of students and staff. No one is allowed to leave their rooms/offices during a hard lockdown.
An evacuation is necessary when it is determined that conditions outside of the building are safer than those inside the building.
Sheltering-in-place provides refuge for students and staff inside the school building during a weather, hazardous materials, or other similar emergency. Students and staff move to designated shelter areas that maximize their safety.
