Safety Drills

To ensure that everyone has familiarity with their role during an emergency, the Scottsdale Unified School District Security Office works in collaboration with school, district and local law enforcement officials to coordinate and hold a series of safety drills each year across all campuses.

These drills provide valuable training and allow for an opportunity to optimize plans. The types of exercises held include:

  • Fire Drills
  • Lockdown Drills
  • Shelter-in-Place Practice
  • Student-Parent Reunification Practice

School and District emergency operations plans are reviewed at least annually to ensure that they benefit from the information gained during training, exercises and lessons learned from other campuses around Arizona and the nation.
