The plans are based on the State of Arizona's Emergency Response Plan. The District's Crisis Manual contains vital information necessary to assist in any emergency situation. In addition to the manual, each school and the District Office have Crisis Response Teams that are mobilized in the event of an emergency to assist in providing information to the students, staff, families and community. Fire and lockdown drills are practiced regularly at each site to ensure that routines and safety procedures are well established and familiar to all. Parents / guardians can expect effective and efficient information communicated in a timely manner regarding school-related situations that may occur on campus.
