BRAWLEY — The Brawley Elementary School District's crisis response team, the district's financial outlook and prospective teachers were among the topics of discussion at Tuesday night's meeting here.
Patrick Buckus, the district's director of special education, presented information from meetings he participated in regarding the district's crisis response teams.
What is ironic, he said, is the meetings were prior to and during the recent shooting at Santana High School in Santee.
Buckus said district safety plans are thorough, though there is "room for improvement in school site plans."
A review of the district's table of organization regarding mental health support (school psychiatrists, staff, etc.) is needed, said Buckus.
Buckus told the board the district will meet with local law enforcement officials Thursday to discuss crisis issues.
Of the necessity of a crisis response team, board President Mary Slaughter said, "I know that none of us like to think about these things, but I think everyone ought to be prepared."
