Safe Schools Program
The Murrieta Valley Unified Safe Schools program received the prestigious 2008 Golden Bell Award from the California School Boards Association. The district-wide Safe Schools Program reduces incidents on and off school campuses and includes an extensive school and law enforcement partnership, staff and parent trainings and student lead activities which have developed a culture of communication throughout district schools.
School Safety Plans
Schools are required by Ed. Code 32280-32289 to write a comprehensive School Safety Plan. The plans are reviewed and rewritten each year; they are approved by the Superintendent every five years. The results of each annual review are shared in the School Accountability Report Cards which are available to the public on request in the school principals offices. For more information, contact school principals or Dale Velk.
Each school in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District has an Emergency and Disaster Preparedness Plan which specifies procedures for dealing with fire, flood, earthquakes, acts of violence, hazardous materials, disaster recovery organization and student accountability following a significant emergency or disaster. Emergency drills (evacuation, duck & cover, and lockdown) are conducted regularly throughout the school year, and each school site maintains an emergency bin of basic survival necessities. For more information on emergency preparedness, contact school principals or Dale Velk.
