Campus lockdown training

In addition to conducting in earthquake and fire drills, Irvine schools practice lockdown procedures each year. In fact, all IUSD campuses have received comprehensive lockdown training from the Irvine Police Department -- and that training is ongoing.

Since October 2007, Irvine schools have engaged in two-tiered training sessions with the Irvine Police Department, which facilitates tabletop drills for school leaders and a full-scale lockdown drill for the entire staff. These trainings have helped our schools develop site-specific responses in collaboration with IPD while identifying critical areas of need.
