A New Law Calls for Secure Schools In Iowa. What do Districts Need to Do?

Every classroom needs a plan. Here's how they can get it.

Iowa's governor signed Senate File 2364 into law on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. The act requires Iowa school districts and accredited nonpublic schools to develop high-quality emergency operations plans for school buildings. Plans must be completed by June 30, 2019.

These plans:
•Are to be developed in cooperation with law enforcement and emergency management officials.
•Must include responses to active-shooters as well as natural disasters.
•Require all school personnel to conduct emergency drills.

"According to the Iowa Department of Education, 88 percent of Iowa school districts report having security plans, but less than 10 percent are high-quality plans with 'walk-through' drills for school staff." – The Cedar Rapids Gazette
