Emergency Management Plan
In accordance with Education Law §2801-a and Commissioner’s regulation §155.17, each public school district must develop and annually update a District-wide Safety Plan. Annually, the District-wide Safety Plan is to be made available for 30-day public comment, including a public hearing, and then be approved by the Board of Education by September 1.
The West Valley CSD 2021-22 draft District-Wide Safety Plan is available on this page for your review. Comments, questions, or concerns may be directed to Dr. Taweepon Farrar, Superintendent at firstname.lastname@example.org. A public comment hearing on the plan will be held at the August 24, 2021 regular meeting of the Board of Education. Check the Board of Education page of the district's website for the most updated board meeting information. Comments on the safety plan will be accepted at the hearing or via email through August 23, 2021.
Education Law §2801-a and Commissioner’s regulation §155.17 also requires that each public school develop and annually update a confidential building-level Emergency Response Plan (ERP) that includes details about how each school's personnel and students would respond to different types of emergency situations that may occur in their school. These ERP's are approved annually by the Board of Education but remain confidential due to the nature of the information contained within each building-level ERP.
