School Safety Plan
Every 3 years the Maritime Academy of Toledo submits an Emergency Management Plan to the Ohio Department of Homeland Security. Below is an excerpt from the Safer Schools Ohio website describing the process of the School Safety Plan.
Ohio Revised Code 3313.536 requires the Administrator of each facility in the state of Ohio that provides educational services to children and is subject to regulation by the Ohio Department of Education to submit an emergency management plan. Other regulations are also in place including the requirement to conduct an annual review and exercise of the plan. The statute can be found here: http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/3313.536(link is external). Ohio schools submit school safety plans via a secure online SAFE portal(link is external) to help first responders in case of an emergency.
State experts with Ohio Homeland Security review the safety plan information submitted and provide guidance to help schools implement best practices and improve their plans. The grading rubric used to determine compliance (known as the Gap Analysis Tool, or GAT) can be found by clicking here. Additionally, the statute requires schools to review their plans each year and conduct emergency training drills so students and teachers can practice what to do in the case of a real emergency.
