SUSD safety plans dated or out of compliance, consultant says


The Stockton Unified School District's Arthur Coleman Jr. Administrative Complex is located at 56 South Lincoln St. in downtown Stockton.

A recently hired consultant will tell Stockton Unified School District’s Board of Trustees at the July 26 meeting that their school site safety plans are outdated or out of compliance with state law, according to district documents. The school year starts at the end of the week.

The Board of Trustees approved an eight-month, $226,800 contract April 12 with Rockeye Consulting, LLC, to review and update comprehensive school safety plans, among other safety-related services, according to district documents. Six days later, 15-year-old Stagg High School freshman Alycia Reynaga was stabbed to death on campus by an intruder in front of classrooms full of students.  

In response to Reynaga’s death, The Stockton Record made a California Public Records Act request May 10 for information directly related to school safety from Stockton Unified: the state-mandated Comprehensive School Safety Plan, the federal Readiness and Emergency Management for Schools program, the elimination of the district’s emergency services school safety program coordinator last year and the Share911 alert system at Stagg High School.
