School Safety Planning & Response

The Monterey County Office of Education provides leadership for the development of school emergency and safety plans through the Office of the Deputy Superintendent. MCOE continues its efforts to coordinate a countywide effort to standardize procedures for crisis management and emergency response. The County has adopted the Big Five training program that was designed by colleagues at the San Mateo County Office of Education in order to update our response mechanism for active shooter and mass violence attacks.
