The Science Academies of New York (SANY) is well aware of the concerns of safety, both physical and emotional, that exist within a public school system in an urban setting. SANY strives to provide a safe learning and teaching environment for all of our students, staff and community members. We are sharing our plan with all stakeholders for their reference, knowledge, comment and support of our initiatives to provide a safe learning and teaching environment for all.
The purpose of the SANY District-Wide School Emergency and Safety Plan (ESP) is to provide all stakeholders with safety planning, emergency preparedness and response guidelines, vital information, communication procedures, and standardized measures to protect all members of the school community, including students, staff and visitors in the event of an emergency. The ESP is in place at all schools in the District, thus ensuring coordinated responses amongst all staff and students. The ESP has been developed with the help of local authorities and emergency responders. The ESP strives to protect the safety and well-being of all community members, student, staff and visitors.
