Ten Minute Tabletop

Short Scenario Based Trainings

A tabletop exercise simulates an emergency situation in a low stress environment. Participants discuss scenarios presented and general problems and procedures in the context of response to a specific incident. The focus is on the roles of individuals and departments, protocols, procedures and responsibilities. Below are incidents that are all based on actual events that have taken place in Idaho schools. Download and read through the scenarios and work through how the incidents might be handled at your school or district. The entire process is designed to be completed in 10 to 15 minutes and accomplish the following goals:

  1. Increase awareness and develop an if-then mindset for school staff, building level and district level administrators.
  2. Determine if current district and building policy, procedure and practice is adequate to the incident in the exercise.
  3. Facilitate the updating of district and school policy and procedure for the types of incidents that may occur in Idaho schools.
