Locked Door Protocol

Active Shooter Situation - Shelter in Place

To help protect your classroom from an intrusive entrance by an active shooter or other person(s) seeking to do harm, you must adhere to the following protocol for securing the classroom door(s).

Doors that can be locked from the inside must be secured at the time class begins and remain closed/ locked for the duration of the class. Doors that are not able to be locked from the inside must be locked from the outside, closed and remain closed for the duration of the class. (This protocol has been used successfully in the College of Science and Technology)

Students must understand that the door to the room will be locked at the time that class is scheduled to begin. Those students who may arrive late to the class should knock to gain entrance and be admitted to the classroom. While students should not make a habit of being late to class, there will be circumstances that may occasionally contribute to a student arriving late. Faculty should address expectations related to this on the syllabus and with the class during Life Safety Orientation with each new class each semester.

 Revised 08/2013
