These routes shall be posted in of each classroom, and in areas where this information will be available to all employees. Teachers should carry the grade records with them in order that the school would have evidence of grades, etc., in case of fire. The principal shall keep on file a record of the days and time of day on which fire drills were held in the school.
The MAX Charter School recognizes the need for fire prevention/precaution in order to protect its employees, students, visitors, and property from the hazards of fire. Reducing and/or eliminating the fire hazards in and around the school and other School Board property should be everyone’s responsibility. As a prerequisite in its fire prevention strategies, the Board shall require inspections by qualified persons of all fire safety and prevention equipment, including but not limited to fire alarm and smoke detection devices as well as all other Board property annually. All necessary service, repairs, and precautions shall be taken by appropriate persons in a timely manner to assure that all such equipment is in good working order and meets the needs for which it was intended. Reports on all inspections shall be maintained on file at the school.
