Is your State Prepared? Are Your Schools?
There have been Disasters that devastated whole school districts.
Most U.S. Schools Missing Adequate Pandemic Response Plans The study, led by Terri Rebmann, Ph.D., associate professor at St. Louis University’s Institute for Biosecurity, found that schools are less prepared for a biological event or pandemic than they are a natural disaster. The study also found that among schools that did have a disaster plan, almost half didn’t include coordination with state or local agencies.
“We were putting this [study] together at the end of the H1N1 pandemic so we expected that to have raised awareness within the schools of the importance of planning for these events,” Rebmann said in a phone interview on Monday. After 2009’s H1N1 pandemic killed 18,000 people worldwide some schools created pandemic plans. Most didn’t.

Are Your Schools Prepared?
There have been Disasters that devastated whole school districts. It's the largest student resettlement in the nation's history. Historians said that those twin challenges surpassed anything that public education had experienced since its creation after the Civil War, including the San Francisco earthquake and the Chicago fire. Schools welcoming the displaced students must not only provide classrooms, teachers and textbooks, but under the terms of President Bush's education law must also almost immediately begin to raise their scholastic achievement unless some provisions of that law are waived.
