Shelton's Emergency Response Plan

Emergency Response Plan


This Emergency Response Plan has been developed to help school administrators prepare for the many aspects of responding to a critical incident involving their schools and/or student/teacher populations.

Shelton School District (SSD) is committed to providing safe and effective learning environments for every child and staff person. Unexpected emergencies may occur, however, the likelihood of effectively managing an emergency is increased with an established emergency plan. The purpose of the Emergency Response Plan is to maximize the safety and welfare of all students, visitors, and staff by promoting emergency preparedness county-wide.

Policy & Authority Emergency

This authoritative Emergency Response Plan identifies responsibilities and procedures to guide emergency response in the SSD. When an emergency occurs, school district officials, their designees, and staff are authorized and directed to implement all necessary actions.


  • Develop a disaster plan
  • Conduct periodic drop and cover drills, evacuation procedures and emergency response actions-once each quarter in elementary schools and once each semester in secondary schools
  • Provide training to students and staff in emergency response procedures
  • Be prepared to have your school serve as a possible public shelter
  • Take mitigation measures to ensure the safety of students and staff-such as securing equipment and furniture.
