Safe Schools Program

Posted by Felicia Longley on 8/5/2021 8:00:00 AM

The YISD Safe Schools Program is a community-wide effort to ensure students, parents, school personnel and community partners, including substitutes who visit our schools and District facilities are safe and secure. The program is built on the five pillars of Emergency Management: Mitigation, Prevention, Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.


  • Campus EOPs must be reviewed once each semester (August & January). Common changes/modifications include (1) administrative, teacher or staff changes, (2) new teacher room assignments and (3) construction and/or facility changes (i.e. loss/gain of portables). Your Fall semester updated Campus EOP should be uploaded to the Documents Folder in the Navigate360 EMS no later than August 31st.
  • Your first fire drill should occur during the first two weeks of school and should be an announced drill. Let all your staff and parents, including substitutes, know the day and time of the drill along with the expected actions involved in the drill. Our primary goal is to monitor appropriate behavior and adherence to drill procedures.
  • The Navigate360 Emergency Management Suite (EMS) is available for the 2023-2024 school year. School Safety Coordinators will have access to manage drills (including exterior door sweeps), EOP, and contact lsit. Please use the EMS Drill Log feature to document your monthly drills.  Use the Drill Log Notes Section to document your After-Action Review.
