In the event of a crisis, each school district will be encouraged to organize their local School-based Response Team which will:
- Assess the situation,
- Establish a plan of action which will include a determination of the number of professionals needed from the CESA #9 Response Team, and
- Recommend the most beneficial use of their services.
It is expected that in most cases, school personnel would be in a position to handle and contain most crises that occur. However, circumstances may develop wherein students, faculty and parents need support services that exceed the capabilities of staff regularly assigned to serve a particular site. It is during such circumstances that the School-based Response Team would recommend the use of the CESA #9 Crisis Management Team.
The CESA #9 Managment Teams' goal is to supplement, not supplant, the work of the School-based Response Team.
