CCSD adopts Standard Response Protocol

"Charleston County School District officially adopted a new safety response program known as the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) on Jan.21, 2020. The SRP is a response framework that provides clear, consistent language and response actions for all staff, students, and first responders. The SRP is a program made available to school districts by The “I Love U Guys” Foundation.

Prior to Jan. 21, CCSD used color codes that indicated emergency lockdown (Code Red), administrative lockdown (Code Yellow) or bomb threat evacuation (Code Green). Because of limitations that exist with that system, district officials have adopted this new and improved system to eliminate inconsistencies and allow students, faculty, staff and visitors to better understand actions required for each code."
