• District-Wide Safety Plan 2022-23 (Draft)


    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 LCSD 2022-23 draft District-Wide Safety Plan is available on this page for your review. Comments, questions, or concerns may be directed to the district's Chief Emergency  Officer, Jamie Phillips, Assistant Superintendent for Business & Support Services, at jphillips@lancasterschools.org or 716.686.3212. A public comment hearing on the plan will be held at the July 11, 2022 regular meeting of the Board of Education. Check the Board of Education page of the district's website for the most updated board meeting streaming information. Comments on the safety plan will be accepted at the hearing or through contact of the Chief Emergency Officer through July 31, 2022.
     
    Education Law §2801-a and Commissioner’s regulation §155.17 also require 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 ERPs are approved annually by the Board of Education but remain confidential due to the nature of the information contained within each building-level ERP.
