Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 is dedicated to the safety and security of all schools, students, and staff. District and school staff must have a comprehensive understanding of the systems that improve safety and security and allow for an immediate response to potential threats to the school environment, crisis situations, and other student or staff needs that may impact the typical school day. Because of the importance of school safety and security as well as the increased legal requirements to ensure student safety, Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 formed a multidisciplinary committee to support the continued development of safety guidelines and expectations, internal and external building staff expectations, visitor management, communication systems, school safety personnel expectations, and other areas of safety and security that committee members believe are necessary for a comprehensive understanding of safety and security expectations.
THE STANDARD RESPONSE PROTOCOL (The “I Love U Guys” Foundation)
A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the uniform classroom response to an incident at school. Weather events, fires, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by school and district administration and staff.
