California public schools are required to comply with California Education Code (CEC), Section 32281, in dealing with the preparation of “safe school plans” and with the Child Nutrition and Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Reauthorization Act of 2004, Section 204 of Public Law 108-265. The plan is comprehensive and addresses violence prevention, emergency preparedness, traffic safety, crisis intervention, and Coordinated School Health. The LAUSD created the Policy on Wellness and Blueprint on Wellness as a guide in creating and maintaining a safe and healthy school environment. LAUSD also issued Reference Guide 1242.6 Update of Safe School Plans Volume 1 and Volume 2, Bulletin No. 58 - Essential Safety Standards Checklist as a guide in the completion of the Safe School Plan.
The Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) developed the Safe School Plan for use as a template in the preparation of safe school plans for each of the District’s 900 schools. The plan is comprised of three volumes: Volume 1 - Prevention Programs ,Volume 2 - Emergency Procedures and Volume 3 - Recovery Procedures. Volume 1 includes issues related to mandated reporting, campus safety, cleanliness, traffic and pedestrian safety, crime prevention, violence prevention, school discipline, attendance, and Coordinated School Health. Volume 2 covers emergency preparedness and response, and the California Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS). SEMS provides an effective framework for managing emergencies ranging from minor incidents to major earthquakes. Volume 3 covers crisis response and recovery and threat assessment.
