#Audit Finds NYC Schools Unprepared for #Emergency Situations | #ESC_LLC #School #Security #Safety | An audit of NYC schools’ safety plans found missing floor plans, unarmed door alarms, and a lack of drills and coordination, among other things.
According to the release, the state’s Department of Education has not been strict in requiring schools file safety plans on time and policies do not routinely align regulations with state requirements.
The assessment looked at safety plans of 25 of the city’s 1,800 schools run by the DOE. It found missing floor plans, unarmed door alarms, radios that were turned off or were not working, and a lack of drills and coordination, among other issues.
