A (COVID-19) School Site-Specific Protection Plan (SSPP) combines state-level guidance published in the California State Resilience Road map and local Riverside County public health policies. The State of California requires all businesses (including schools) to:
- Perform a detailed Risk Assessment (school site walk-through and implement a school SSPP)
- Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them
- Implement individual control measures and screenings
- Implement disinfecting protocols
- Implement physical distancing guidelines.
The following SSPPs are now part of each school's Comprehensive School Safety Plan. As the COVID-19 public health crisis continues to evolve and new Public Health Orders are issued both at the State and local levels, amendments to individual schools' SSPPs may be needed in order to incorporate new requirements. The SJUSD COVID-19 Point-of-Contact is Dr. Karen Kirschinger, Director of Student, Community and Personnel Support, who will post and disseminate updated information and tools for schools to use in developing any needed amendments.
In accordance with Education Code 32280-32288 and SJUSD Board Policy and Administrative Regulations 0450(a)(b), Comprehensive School Safety Plans (CSSPs) are updated annually by March 1st.
NOTE: Some components of the CSSPs may include proprietary or confidential information that shall not be released to the general public including personal contact information for students or staff members, tactical response procedures or strategies, building infrastructure or asset information, sensitive emergency contact information, detailed security procedures for campus crisis response and campus vulnerability assessment information.
Copies of the CSSPs are kept on file at the respective school site, the District Office, and on a secure server. School staff and responders have access to the Plan through had copy and electronic formats.
Stakeholders (parents, first responders, staff, etc.) are invited to submit questions or suggestions to any School Safety Committee and can review any school's complete plan (including confidential portions) by appointment with the Student, Community & Personnel Support Department (951-929-7700 x 4288) during regular business hours. No portion of the Plan may be copied, redistributed or made available, in hard copy, digital format or otherwise, without the expressed written consent of the District, and in compliance with any copyright laws that may apply to the materials contained within.
