Superintendents Message

Greetings! This edition of the Polk School District System Emergency Operations Plan will help our school administrators in compiling their schools emergency operations plans in accordance with the latest school safety law in Georgia, O.C.G.A 20-2-1185l, otherwise commonly referred to as Senate Bill 74, and effective July 1, 1999.

School safety and security is something that all of us can work at to improve the safety of our children, our peers, and our community. As a result of recent events and incidents concerning school safety and security throughout our nation, common sense dictates that we institute proactive measures to stop or reduce any and all dangerous or unsafe measures affecting our schools today. Proactive steps need to be taken before an incident happens, rather than reactive steps after the fact.

We have worked with various school security and public safety officials, both locally and statewide to ensure that our schoolchildren can come to school in a safe, nurturing environment, where we can provide them with the educational tools and learning processes to give them their best opportunity of success.

I know that all of us are doing everything in our power to ensure the safety and security of children, our staff, and indeed, everyone in our community. This edition of the Polk School District Emergency Operations Plan is the latest endeavor in that regard, and it has been compiled to ensure that each and every one of our schools are as safe as they can be.

If you have any questions or need any assistance in compiling your own individual plan for your school, please call Greg Teems, Director of School Safety, Polk School District, at telephone number 770-748-3821; or Randy Lacey, GEMA Area Coordinator, School Safety Project Team, Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) at 1-800-TRY-GEMA.
