School districts typically have emergency management plans in place. However, they are not always practiced regularly, coordinated with community resources, discussed with families, or updated regularly to align with factual data and circumstances. Consequently, they may find themselves unprepared in situations requiring an emergency response.

- Phase 1: Mitigation and Prevention
