This week, school staff have been educated on updated procedures. The education of students on the procedures in a developmentally appropriate manner is planned to occur sometime before May 11. Each school will prepare for a drill of the new procedures by the end of May. These will not be simulation-type drills, but rather a test and response to the emergency signals much like is done during the mandated monthly fire drills. School district personnel will observe and review the drills to further refine the procedures. District officials will work directly with South Centre Township Police, State Police and Columbia County Emergency Management when implementing the drills.
