Illinois School Safety Drill Act

Geneva School District complies with the Illinois School Safety Drill Act. The purpose of this Act is to establish minimum requirements and standards for schools to follow when conducting school safety drills and reviewing school emergency and crisis response plans. The Illinois School Safety Drill Act also encourages schools and first responders to work together for the safety of children.
All schools that house students are required to conduct the following drills annually.
  • 3 fire drills: One of these drills the fire department must be present to observe and provide direction and feedback;
  • 1 severe weather drill commonly referred to as a tornado drill;
  • 1 bus evacuation drill that is conducted with the Transportation Department;
  • 1 Law enforcement drill commonly referred to as a hard lockdown or active shooter drill (must be observed by law enforcement).
Each public school district, through its school board or the board’s designee, shall conduct a minimum of one annual meeting at which it will review each school building’s emergency and crisis response plans, protocols, and procedures and each building’s compliance with the school safety drill programs.
Geneva School District usually completes this annual meeting sometime prior to September 15 and invites all of our first responder partners. Our partners include the Geneva Police Department, the Geneva Fire Department, the Kane County Sheriff’s Department, Elburn/Countryside Fire Department, Kane County Emergency Management, and the Kane County Health Department.
