State law requires districts to develop school emergency operations plans (EOPs) that include procedures for plan review and update.
92 Nebraska Administrative Code 10-011. Accreditation of Schools
011.01C Each school system has a school safety and security committee which includes representatives of faculty, parents, and the community. The committee meets at least annually to prepare and/or review safety and security plans and procedures, including emergency plans and procedures.
011.01D The school system's safety and security plan(s) are reviewed annually by one or more persons not on the local school system safety committee and not an employee of the school system. This review will include a visit to school buildings to analyze plans, policies, procedures, and practices and provide recommendations. Any recommendations made as a result of the analysis are forwarded to the head administrator and to the school safety and security committee to be considered in making revisions to the plan.
Nebraska Revised Statutes 79-2,144. State school security director; duties.
