Elements of School Safety

A Comprehensive Look at school safety

Vacaville Unified has identified six areas of focus in order to continually build a comprehensive safety plan for student and staff safety. VUSD works closely with the Vacaville Police Department both in plan development as well as incident response. 

Security

Security includes ongoing enhancements to fencing, gates, access points, supervision, video cameras, etc.

Preparedness

Preparedness involves monthly drills of the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) actions of Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate and Shelter. Reunification, incident command and communication drills are also part of VUSD's preparedness. CPR, Stop The Bleed, and AED training are other critical elements.

Awareness & Reporting

Situational awareness, reporting information about possible threats, and reporting cries for help are critical in maintaining safe schools.
