's Emergency Response and Crisis Management grant program in October 2005 to strengthen the district's emergency response plans and to conduct training classes. The district has held a series of training sessions including Critical Incident Planning Teams, Biomedical Emergency Planning and Threat Assessments with school personnel from all over the district. The classes are being conducted by Prepared Response, Inc., which previously deployed a district-wide crisis management planning and response system called Rapid Responder® for the school district.

In the Critical Incident Planning Teams training course, school personnel learned how to form campus safety teams and were taught tools for safety planning, including how to conduct in-depth safety assessments using the Rapid Responder School Mapping System. In the Biomedical Emergency Planning sessions, school personnel were trained on the history of pandemic influenza, including current biomedical threats and how the World Health Organization's alert system relates to the National Response Plan. In addition, participants examined several elements of a comprehensive pandemic response plan and a continuity of operations plan (COOP). The Threat Assessment workshops taught participants how to properly identify threats and how to develop threat assessment processes to prevent violence.
