Nyc Doe Launches 24/7 School Safety “Emergency Operations Centre”

The Department of Education will construct an emergency operations center to ensure an “organized, speedy response” to municipal schools in the event of an emergency, as reported by The Post.

On March 15th, the EOC will officially open to the public. An internal DOE letter states that in the event of a circumstance that “disrupts schoolwide operations,” superintendents or their designees must contact the center via phone or email.

The EOC will start an email chain within 15 minutes after the intake call or email.

Several school administrators told The Post they were left with no further information or directives.

“I don’t know what’s going on,” stated one. Is there something they know but are keeping to themselves?

The decision was made after a spate of gunshots outside of schools this month and an increase in violence that has claimed the lives of three pupils since September.

This week, an alleged gang member was charged in connection with a gunshot on February 8 outside a Williamsburg school that left two kids and a school safety agent injured.

Two teenagers were shot in Williamsburg, New York, two days prior. The shooting happened a block away from the school.

In response to the increase in gun violence, the NYPD has increased patrols around dismissal time at troubled schools.

According to the memo, the new procedure would replace the “multiple escalation paths” that superintendents have previously used to notify situations.

As Mayor Adams requested weekly Zoom meetings between school administrators and local police commanders to discuss potential safety risks, the EOC was officially announced in a memo.
