Product Description

The Santa Clara County Public Health Department Advanced Practice Center created the Pandemic Influenza School Planning Toolkit to assist local public health agencies in partnering with the schools within their jurisdictions for pandemic emergency preparedness planning.  The toolkit is designed to:  Increase awareness of the threat of a pandemic influenza and its impact on the school community. Guide schools in developing specific pandemic influenza measures to integrate into their emergency crisis plans. Specifically, To increase preventive health behaviors that limit the spread of viruses, such as a pandemic influenza. To continue student learning and core operations during the pandemic. To recover, returning to the "new normal," when the pandemic has passed. A plan template is provided to guide development of pandemic specific measures to augment a school's emergency crisis plan. The plan template is supported by several tools (e.g., communications tools and continuity of instruction tools) to assist schools in completing specific template sections. The template, when completed by a school, becomes the school's pandemic plan.
