Each school operating under the jurisdiction of the Meriden Board of Education will create and implement an all-hazards school security and safety plan to bolster its existing emergency preparedness, response capability and school safety and security measures and to best meet all-hazards threats.  This plan will adhere to the requirements of state law and will include procedures for managing various types of emergencies and crisis management procedures.  Each individual school’s plan should be kept securely and will only be provided to the Board of Education, school staff and administration, members of state and local law enforcement, first responders and local municipal officials.  Pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes § 1-210 (b)(19), the plan will not be available to the public.
