This includes physical security, cyber security, surveillance security and implementing safety protocols to engage safe practices. Planning and preparing for emergencies that could interrupt the school day for students. This includes Emergency Operation Plans for major disasters.


SCUSD's top priority is to ensure all schools have adequate security measures to ensure the well-being of students, staff, families, and visitors. While each school’s security system differs based on the size and layout of its campus and other factors, security measures in SCUSD may include some or all of the following:

  • Visitor check-in procedures
  • Locked doors after the start of the school day
  • Locked perimeter fences after the start of the school day
  • Surveillance cameras
  • School Resource Officers (SROs) or Neighborhood Resource Officers (NROs) via local police departments
  • Campus security personnel
