Emergency Plan

Jeffco Public Schools is committed to ensuring the safety and security of our students, staff and visitors. The district emergency plan covers all five phases of preparedness (Response, Recovery, Prevention, Mitigation and Preparedness).

Preparedness Cycle

Response: The Standard Response Protocol (SRP)

In an emergency Jeffco has a plan called the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) established by the I Love U Guys Foundation. The SRP is a set of actions and directives to keep everyone in a school safe during an incident. The SRP uses a uniform-specific language shared with students, staff, responders and families.

Recovery: The Standard Reunification Method (SRM)

Prevention: Behavioral Threat Assessment

Jeffco always takes threats to school safety seriously. The district works closely with law enforcement partners to assess and manage all threats by using behavioral threat assessment tools from reliable sources such as the U.S. Department of Secret Service, Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Department of Education and Nicoletti-Flater Associates.

Mitigation: Safe School Buildings

Jeffco fosters safe and welcoming environments for all students and staff. Following national best practices, the district uses a variety of environmental design elements to create safe school buildings. While Jeffco cannot discuss specific safety measures, some of these include security cameras and secure vestibules.

Preparedness: Emergency Drills

Jeffco conducts emergency drills that follow state, federal and international law. The goal of emergency drills is to provide a safe and educational opportunity for students and staff to learn the life skills necessary to stay safe in emergency situations.
