School Safety Overview

  • The purpose of this page is to provide parents, volunteers, and visitors with information on district safety procedures and links to helpful information.

    Parents and guardians can feel confident that your child's school is a safe place to learn each day. The City Schools of Decatur plans for multiple types of emergencies in order to be prepared for any actual emergency situation. The CSD Safety Team, School Principals, and School Resource Officers work to ensure the safety and security of our students and staff.

    Emergency Preparation plans include:

    • School and district safety plans and emergency response procedures are reviewed and updated each year.
    • Each staff member received safety training. 
    • Schools and District Leaders assign key staff members roles and responsibilities to perform in emergencies.
    • Schools conduct required drills throughout the year to practice emergency procedures.


    City Schools of Decatur has been through a comprehensive school security assessment where our schools and district safety plans were assessed to identify the positive school safety procedures currently practiced, and to make recommendations for strengthening the district's safety, security, and crisis preparedness. We continue to practice, evaluate, and update our plans on a regular basis.
