- A minimum of five fire drills per school year, with three taking place by December 1 and the two remaining drills during the remaining part of the school year with a reasonable spacing between each drill.
- A minimum of two tornado drills per school year, with at least one taking place in March.
- A minimum of three school safety/security drills with at least one to be conducted by December 1 and one after January 1, with a reasonable spacing between each drill.
