Spearman ISD has adopted the Standard Response Protocol (SRP), a nationally-recognized, proven methodology that ensures a uniform response by faculty, staff and students to school-based emergencies.
The Standard Response Protocol has been developed for implementation within K-12 and university education settings by the "I Love U Guys" Foundation, a Colorado-based non-profit organization committed to student safety. The SRP has been endorsed by the Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC), the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the office of the Governor for the State of Texas.
Administrators, campus staff and students are trained each school year on SRP and conduct SRP-based emergency drills each semester, as well as state-mandated fire drills, to reinforce emergency preparedness. While SRP is not a replacement for school safety plans or programs, it standardizes Spearman ISD's approach to emergency management by providing for consistent terminology and response actions during an emergency.
