    The ISSP system is open for the 2023-24 school year and REF 5511.13 Completing and Updating the Integrated Safe School Plan 2023-2024 is available.

    The ISSP due date for 2023-2024 is October 2, 2023. 

    The direct URL for the Integrated Safe School Plan system is https://issp.lausd.net. It can also be accessed through the Principal's Portal.

    The ISSP system incorporates the latest federal guidance and autopopulates key information, eliminates redundant inputs, and has a shorter printout than the old Safe School Plan Creator. All staff members are able to view the emergency plan online. Several resources for editing and using the plan are available in the Resources section below. 

California public schools are required to comply with California Education Code (E.C.) §§32281-2, which calls for preparing school safety plans relevant to the needs and resources of the school, addressing violence prevention, child abuse reporting procedures, and emergency preparedness, as well as assessing current status of crime on campus and at school-related functions. The ISSP online system (https://issp.lausd.net/) standardizes the plan across Los Angeles Unified schools and guides the preparation of annual updates. Schools customize the plan template to meet their needs. A copy of the plan must be available in the Main Office of the school for public review.

The Integrated Safe School Plan uses the Incident Command System (ICS). ICS is designed to centralize and coordinate emergency response actions among police, fire and other public agencies, including school districts. It provides an effective framework for managing emergencies ranging from minor incidents to major earthquakes, using a school site incident management team. LAUSD's Integrated Safe School Plan is compliant with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the California Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS).   

Please review the ISSP school-level entries, such as, the emergency team assignments periodically throughout the school year (and whenever there are staffing changes) to ensure that the information in the plan is current. Content of the Integrated Safe School Plan also includes violence prevention, traffic safety, and student wellness, covering multiple legislative and Board policies.
If you are not an LAUSD school and would like more information on our ISSP or other emergency readiness documents, please contact Dr. Jill Barnes, Administrator, Office of Emergency Management, at (213) 241-3889.
