For emergency situations, TVSD has a COMPREHENSIVE ALL HAZARDS EMERGENCY PLAN. The plan was developed through the joint efforts of all 18 Berks County School Districts and in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies and the Berks County IU. One of the most important aspects of the plan is the Standard Response Protocol.
The Standard Response Protocol is based on four actions that students and staff take during an incident. Schools across the country are adopting a universal standard to enhance student and staff safety during an incident or emergency. This is an all hazard approach that can be implemented during any crisis. The key is that there is a simple, shared vocabulary between students, staff and first-responders.
