Standard Response Protocol (SRP)

The Standard Response Protocol (SRP) was developed by the "I Love U Guys" Foundation and is based on an all-hazards approach as opposed to individual scenarios.  The SRP requires a specific vocabulary but also allows for great flexibility and is used within the Panama-Buena Vista Union School District.  The SRP is based on five actions:  Hold, Secure, Lockdown, Evacuate and Shelter.  A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is a uniform classroom response to any incident.  Weather events, fires, accidents, intruders and other threats to threats to students and staff safety are scenarios that all school staff and district administrators plan and train for throughout the school year utilizing the SRP process. Confidential tactical response and/or related information would not be shared with partners, not in law enforcement.
