ensures that Antelope View Charter School staff is prepared for the many aspects of responding to a critical incident involving their school or student teacher populations. A Crisis Management Plan…
The membership of AVCS’s CMT consists of an immediately accessible core group of school personnel who have the knowledge and skills to handle an emergency situation. A wide range of members for the CMT have been selected to ensure the various aspects of crisis planning can be accomplished.
Members of the team are trained to identify alarming changes in student behavior and community events or incidents that could affect the school. Action is taken to address the needs of the school population.
The incident commander is the overall leader during an emergency incident. The incident commander makes decisions based on the information and suggestions being provided from other members of the crisis team. This role may be combined with a liaison role but should not be combined with any other active role during a critical incident.
This team member is responsible for ensuring all teachers have an accurate accounting of students and for coordinating efforts in accounting for missing or extra students. Much of this role involves planning for an incident and communicating with the faculty on the importance of removing rosters during an emergency so student accountability can take place.
The duties of this position focus on organizing the off-site evacuation location during an emergency situation. This includes planning the movement of the students to the location and assisting with accounting of the students once they are moved; planning for the use of a location, and planning the evacuation route to safely move the students.
The public relations manager will meet the media on the west side of the parking lot adjacent to CHS’s parking lot and use the grassy area there and asphalt just on the other side of the grassy area as a staging location .
The school’s off-site evacuation location is large enough to handle school bus traffic. There is no need for a second area to be used if students are going to be dismissed from a location other than the primary school building.
There is a plan for requesting sheriff assistance that will be needed to control traffic near the park.
