A Comprehensive Safety Audit was completed in spring/summer 2018, with collaboration from the Carlsbad Police Department, the San Diego County Law Enforcement Coordination Center, and the US Department of Homeland Security.
The Audit consisted of two main parts:
In August 2018, the District highlighted eighteen areas that were reviewed and analyzed regarding school safety and preparedness; the report included recommendations and anticipated costs for improvements.
In August 2022, the District publicly reviewed the current status of the school safety and preparedness measures identified in the 2018 report, and included next steps for completion of an updated 2022 Comprehensive Safety Audit, again in partnership with the Carlsbad Police Department, the San Diego County Law Enforcement Coordination Center, and the US Department of Homeland Security.
Further, as part of our ongoing efforts, the District shall hold Active Shooter Event (ASE) drills throughout the school year with staff, and age/grade-appropriate training with students.
Some Important Information Regarding the Drills
The goal of any drill is to improve our ability to protect students. While students and staff are aware the drill will be occurring, specifics about the date and time may not always be shared so we can better evaluate our emergency preparedness plans and improve our response skills.
