How Do You Prepare for the Worst?September 25, 2017
Superintendent, Kent Taylor from Lennox School District plays an active role in keeping the students of his district safe by serving on the district’s Safety Committee, along with other leaders, staff and faculty within the district. Lennox SD is located in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles in the flight path of LAX, yet has busy, narrow, urban streets with schools very near the 405 freeway – a difficult area to access during an emergency.
Superintendent Taylor posed to the safety committee that “it is our priority to keep students and staff safe even during the worst situations. We need to have updated plans in place and then practice.” The Lennox team turned to their ASCIP partner for assistance and began to plan a drill – a shooter on campus scenario at their middle school.
