The New Integrated Safe School Plan System is Here!

    issp cover The new Integrated Safe School Plan (ISSP) opened to users on Tuesday, August 1. The new system incorporates the latest federal guidance and autopopulates key information, eliminates redundant inputs, and has a shorter printout. All staff members at a school will be able to view the emergency plan online. The Reference Guide and a quick guide for editing the ISSP are available. There is also a video class available on the Learning Zone, STEPS 423 Updating and Submitting the Integrated Safe School Plan. Check with your Local District. In-person training conducted by the Office of Emergency Services was offered to all Local Districts in August.

    The direct URL for the Integrated Safe School Plan system is https://issp.lausd.net or through the Principal's Portal.


    The Integrated Safe School Plan is due by October 1 every year.  In 2017, October 1 is a Sunday, so the 2017-2018 ISSP was due on Monday, October 2, 2017. 





LAUSD schools are required to comply with California Education Code Section §32286(a), which mandates the preparation of school safety plans. These plans address violence prevention, emergency preparedness, traffic safety and crisis intervention. The District developed the Safe School Plan as a template for school safety plans for each of the District's 1000 schools. The template standardizes safe school plans throughout the District and minimizes the time required for annual updates.  A copy of the plan must be available in the Main Office of the school for public review.

The Safe School Plan covers emergency preparedness and response and crisis intervention, and is based on the Incident Command System (ICS). ICS is designed to centralize and coordinate emergency response actions among police, fire and other public agencies, including school districts. It provides an effective framework for managing emergencies ranging from minor incidents to major earthquakes, using a school site incident management team. LAUSD's Safe School Plan is compliant with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the California Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS).   

Please review emergency team assignments periodically throughout the school year (and whenever there are staffing changes) to ensure that the information in the plan is current.  Content of the Safe School Plan also includes violence prevention, traffic safety, and student wellness, covering multiple legislative and Board policies.
If you are not an LAUSD school and would like more information on our ISSP and other emergency readiness documents, please contact Dr. Jill Barnes, Executive Emergency Strategist, Office of Emergency Services, at (213) 241-3889.
