Emergency Drill Policy

The Zachary Community School Board shall require special drill activities be
planned by the principal and faculty of each school to assure orderly movement
and evacuation of students to the safest area in the event of an emergency.
Such activities shall be conducted in accordance with regulations and
procedures developed by the Superintendent and staff.
The plan shall provide for escape routes and alternate routes for all students
and teachers in the schools. Teachers and students shall be informed of
escape routes, and a map shall be placed in each room specifying the routes
and procedures for evacuating the buildings.
A fire drill should be conducted monthly in each school, with two fire drills
conducted the first two weeks of school. One bus emergency evacuation drill
per semester shall be held in each school of the school district. A report
concerning all drills and evacuations shall be kept on file.
