Emergency Safety Interventions

Board Policy GAAF - Emergency Safety Interventions was approved at July 6, 2016, Board of Education meeting.

The State Board of Education adopted new regulations requiring districts to adopt policy concerning emergency safety interventions ("ESI") applicable to ALL district students. This policy and the attached form have been developed to address the new regulatory requirements.

Note also that training will be required for all staff in some degree or another. This means not only certified staff but bus drivers, custodians, cooks, board clerks, etc. will need to be provided at least a basic level of training in ESI as determined necessary by district administration.
