This year's theme will be "The End of Bullying Begins With Me." Each and every day students and adults in the Wichita Public Schools, and all around the state, are saying "no" to bullying and making a difference. You can follow the positive efforts posted on Twitter at #ItStartsWithMe.

Crisis Planning and Preparedness: Run, Hide, Fight

While violent intruders in schools is extremely rare, Wichita Public Schools has implemented the Run, Hide, Fight Intruder response plan as part of it's comprehensive approach to crisis planning and preparedness district-wide. This informative training tool was introduced and is managed by the Safety Services Department.

Run, Hide, Fight is an intruder response plan where staff and students assess the situation and respond on which option is best. As the name implies, if a violent intruder comes into a school, the response could be to run to a safe place, or hide in a locked area, or attempt to stop the intruder as a last resort with items found in the school.

Run, Hide, Fight is supported by Kansas Safe and Prepared Schools, the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
