Standard Response Protocol

Standard Response Protocol
Posted on 07/21/2018
Standard Response Method

One critical aspect of crisis response is accountable reunification of students with their parents or guardians in the event of a school crisis or emergency. The Standard Reunification Method provides school and district safety teams with proven methods for planning, practicing and achieving a successful reunification. Keep in mind though, this is an evolving process. While there is a smattering of science in these methods, there is certainly more art. More.

What is the SRP? Each week, Liberty Elementary School District will review the Standard Response Protocol we're adopting at all of our schools. This week, we take an overall look at the program. You also can find it online.

The Liberty Elementary School District is committed to student and staff safety.  In an effort to keep parents abreast of these efforts, you will be receiving notices of practice safety drills that occur throughout the district.  These practice safety drills are in partnership with local law enforcement and will continue throughout the district. 

Today the students at Estrella Mountain Elementary School and Freedom Elementary School participated in a practice lockdown safety drill.  Goodyear and Buckeye Police Department respectively were in attendance to assist and evaluate.  Both agencies had positive comments about the drills and shared areas to improve upon.     

Please feel free to contact your child(ren)’s school, should you have further questions about their safety practices.

Our goal is to prevent incidents. But, should one occur, you will find timely updates at Please bookmark this page for future reference and add it to your home screen on your smart device.

Today, you can learn more about the Standard Response Protocol - SRP - through a program recommended by local law enforcement called “I Love You Guys.” Every Thursday, we’ll highlight informative SRP portions for students, staff, and families through our website and social media pages.
