Standard Response Protocol

Derby Public Schools uses the Standard Response Protocol (SRP). This is a simplified crisis response that helps staff, students, parents and first responders to quickly and adequately respond to crisis situations. 

The SRP is based on five actions: 
Hold is an action when hallways need to be kept clear, even during class changes, often used in times of a medical emergency. 
Secure is followed by the Directive: "Get Inside. Lock Outside Doors" and is the action used to safeguard students and staff within the building.
Lockdown is followed by "Locks, Lights, Out of Sight" and is the action used to secure individual rooms and keep students quiet and in place.
Evacuate is an action that is always followed by a location, and is used to move students and staff from one location to a different location in or out of the building.
Shelter is an action used when the need for personal protection is necessary.
