Being Prepared!

The Prince William County Public School Division has established crisis management plans and policies for how all types of potential crises are to be handled. Crisis management is part of the School Division's approach to school safety. It anticipates potential problems and establishes a coordinated response to minimize the stress and disruptions a crisis might bring to bear on the School Division and the community. Each school has emergency and contingency plans in place to respond to different types of events as they occur. Each school has also established a Crisis Response Team (CRT) that is an integral part of the school's emergency management plan. The School Division works closely with local law enforcement agencies to coordinate responses to particular incidents.

Ashland as well as all of the schools in the Division implements and practices safety drills to be prepared at all times for emergencies. We started these drills this week very successfully. Our number one priority is keeping students, staff, and visitors safe at all times.

If you are interested in more information about our crisis procedures, please check out this video prepared by our Risk Management and Security Services.


Military-Connected Family Survey

Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) received a DoDEA grant to help military-connected students and their family transition into PWCS and provide specific support to military-connected families. To that end, PWCS recently hired a Military Student Transition Consultant (MSTC) from the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC). At this time, the consultant will be working initially with families from Ashland, Henderson, and Pattie Elementary Schools as she develops a military-connected transition program for the entire School Division.

In an effort to serve you better, we are asking you to complete this short survey. Your feedback is important and will be used when determining the type of support and resources that would be most beneficial to your family. Your participation in completing this survey is voluntary but strongly encouraged. All information that you disclose in this survey will be kept confidential within PWCS. Anonymized and summary data will be given to a 3rd party evaluator to ensure we are meeting the grant’s goals.

If you have any questions about this survey or the program, please feel free to contact Darlene Friedline at , or Carolyn Juba at .


Please visit our new Military Connected Student Support Webpage
Thank you in advance for your participation!
