Protecting What’s Important

Here in the Johnston Community School District, we take safety and security very seriously. After all, our students, educators, and staff are what makes this an incredible place to learn and grow.

During the 2015-16 school year, much time was spent bolstering our district’s Emergency Operations Plan, bringing it up to date with current practices. Part of that updating process was spent helping staff become more familiar (and comfortable) with the practices and procedures recommended for a variety of unplanned events. Each of the eight schools within the district also has a Building Crisis Team that serve a critical role in disseminating information to all staff during an emergency and aiding families however necessary.

Safety and security is more than planning for emergency situations. Please use the sub-page navigation on the right hand side of the web page to view our practices on visiting school buildings, crisis management, inclement weather, and our School Resource Officer program.
