Message from Superintendent Brown Regarding District Safety Plans

February 15, 2018
Dear Families, Students, and Staff,
In light of the terrible incident yesterday in Florida, I wish to update you on the Ithaca City School District’s continuous efforts to provide a safe learning environment for our students and staff. The ICSD has a Code of Conduct and a District Safety Plan, which also contains specific Building Safety Plans. Per NYS regulations, each school is required to conduct eight evacuation drills and four lockdown (intruder/shooter, etc.) drills per year. We are in the process of researching and implementing additional scenario-based drills in collaboration with the Ithaca Police Department and other law enforcement partners.
In addition to the ICSD web page, information may be found on the New York State Center for School Safety website.
