SUGGESTED GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF A SCHOOL CRISIS MANAGEMENT

PLAN

1. GOALS:

● To increase the security of the staff and students.

● To minimize the damage and loss.

● To return the school to its normal functioning level as soon as possible by diminishing as much
chaos and confusion as possible.

● To provide the necessary counseling to assist students and staff, who are emotionally affected by
the crisis, to deal with the trauma.

2. OBJECTIVES:

● To outline a predetermined plan of action which will be used to respond to emergencies or


disasters.

● To establish a group of specifically selected and trained individuals who collectively have the
knowledge, skills, and sensitivity to act as crisis management specialists.

● To develop an information sharing system to contain rumors and prevent escalation of the
crisis.

● To utilize district and community resources and create a partnership with parents following
crisis events.

● To provide guidelines for responding to the media during a crisis.

● To outline stress management and debriefing procedures for crisis workers.

FUNCTIONS OF THE SCHOOL CRISIS RESPONSE TEAM

1. Develop the plan before any incidents occur.

2. Prepare the staff for what to expect and provide training for them to fulfill their designated
roles.

3. Inform district and community resources about your crisis plans and their possible
involvement.

4. Develop a mechanism through which all team members can be gathered together
immediately to implement the plan.

5. Periodically review the plan to accommodate changes in attendance, number or location of


handicapped students, staff changes, addition of new programs, a change in building structure, or
changes in the community that would affect building safety

Debriefing Session
Purpose: The Crisis Team will learn from experience, vent feelings, bolster morale, prevent burnout,
and foster teamwork. It is not to gather information and interrogate.

To Do List
Set debriefing meeting: 1) After event occurred, 2) At the end of the day, 3) When the crisis is resolved (if
takes more than 1 day).

Have each participating describe his/her experience of the day and his/her role in the containing the crisis.
Ask what team members need from each other to make their jobs go more smoothly.
Review what went well. (Note: Crisis work puts a strain on people. Compliment and acknowledge people
of their efforts).

Analyze problem areas and decide how those areas can be corrected. Crisis plan may need to be revised.
Provide follow-up services for those affected the most (as this can result in PTS).
Look for burnout in crisis workers and allow those to remove themselves from the team (i.e. if they are too
close to the victim, witnessed the event, major stress in personal life, etc).
Signs of burnout:
* feeling apathetic, sad, anxious, guilty, helpless
* physically tired, nervous, loss of appetite
* has trouble sleeping, headaches, stomach pains
* difficulty concentrating or making decisions
Support teams members:
* provide refreshments
*encourage breaks throughout the day
* participate in debriefing sessions
* allow compensatory time for after-hours work
* recognize contribution verbally and in writing
