Policy 3520

Extraordinary Circumstances

 

The Broadalbin-Perth Central School District considers the safety of its students and staff to be of the utmost importance and is acutely aware that extraordinary circumstances such as widespread illness, natural disaster, or other emergency situation may make District premises unsafe or otherwise interrupt the District’s ability to effectively operate. 

 

In these circumstances, the District will follow its previously developed policies, procedures, and plans including, but not limited to, the District-wide school safety plan and building-level emergency response plan(s). To the extent that any District policy, procedure, or plan is in any way inconsistent with or conflicts with federal, state, or county law, regulation, or executive order released for the purpose of addressing the extraordinary circumstance, the federal, state, or county law, regulation, or executive order will govern. Additionally, the Board may adopt resolutions or take other actions as needed to respond to changes in federal, state, or county law, regulation, or executive order to provide further direction during an extraordinary circumstance.
