Vacaville Unified officials will host districtwide trainings that cast an eye on safety and emergencies, gatherings that will be held in the Educational Services Center, 401 Nut Tree Road.
From 4:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, officials will focus on the district’s Standard Reunification Method protocols and the organization, planning and management of an Emergency Operations Center.
At 5:30 p.m., the officials will host a parent training for emergency response.
The trainings come nearly two weeks after a mass shooting in a Parkland, Fla., high school, where 17 people, 14 students, and three adults were killed by a 19-year-old former student who wielded an AR-15, a semi-automatic rifle.
The shooting has prompted a national debate about access to military-style assault weapons, the sales of firearms and ammunition, school safety, mental illness, universal background checks, and the arming of classroom teachers.
