New and Revised Emergency Safety Intervention (ESI) Resources
Since April 2013, all public school districts and accredited private schools have been required to comply with emergency safety intervention regulations developed by the Kansas State Board of Education. These regulations are still in effect and were recently amended. In 2015, the Kansas Legislature passed statutes on emergency safety intervention, which were amended during the 2016 legislative session and went into effect on July 1, 2016. The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) and the Kansas Technical Assistance System Network (TASN) have revised the emergency safety intervention resources and developed resources to help districts fulfill their obligations under the amended law and inform staff and families of these revised requirements. Here is an overview of some of the revised resources. Please visit www.ksdetasn.org and click on Emergency Safety Interventions Resources in the menu on the left for a full list of available resources.
