Site Access Control Q1

• Site fencing is secure if at least 6 feet tall above existing grade on the public side of the fence
• If a fence is partially buried or the top is crushed, making it less than 6 feet tall, it is not continuous
• Occupied portions of the site include buildings and site areas occupied during regular school hours
• Note: If the site is fully fenced, but the fencing is less than 6 feet tall (public side), the site is not fully fenced
- If a 6 feet tall fence is partially buried, approximate the linear feet buried, photograph, and mark for further discussion
- If a fence is taller than 5 feet, photograph it, take notes and bring back for further discussion

Site Access Control Q2

• Vehicle access points are driveways or other defined vehicular paths from offsite locations onto the site
• Vehicle access points are controlled when:
- there is a gate at the driveway (manual or automatic)
OR
- there is direct visual control of the access point from a site access control building (guard shack)

Site Access Control Q3

• Pedestrian access points are fence openings, gates, sidewalks, and other on-grade paths from offsite locations onto the site
• Pedestrian access points are controlled when:
- there is a gate restricting free passage through a fence
OR
- landscape or topological barriers make on-grade pedestrian entry impractical (cactus thickets, cliffs, deep arroyos, etc.)
• Note: If the site is not fenced or is partially fenced, pedestrian access is not controlled

Site Access Control Q4

• Limited - Pedestrians are physically restricted from accessing all site areas (internal fencing, landscape barriers, etc.)
• Controlled – Pedestrians are directed to a main entry by signage, pathways, gates, or landscape
• Monitored – Pedestrian access is monitored by cameras, SROs, or direct visual control by school staff
• Note: Pedestrian access is not controlled if pedestrians can walk around and up to any occupied area without restriction or monitoring
Pedestrian access is fully controlled if pedestrians can only access the main entry or front of the school once they are on-site

Site Access Control Q5

• Permanent features - building walls, signage, monuments, sculpture, and other large obstructions fixed to the ground
• Non-permanent features - trees, shrubs, trash cans, and other obstructions that can be moved with limited effort
• Direct visual control is a view through windows from occupied spaces within the administration area
• Approach to the main entry is the pedestrian pathway from the parking area to the main entry
• Note: visual access of the approach can be obstructed by window framing and still reasonably considered fully controlled

Building Exterior Q6

• Closed and secured - a door that can be pulled or pushed shut, latched, and locked with a code compliant hardware device
• Egress doors that are chained, screwed shut, barricaded, barred, or padlocked are not considered closed and secured
• If a door is not capable of being closed and secured, photograph it, note the location, and take extensive notes for further discussion

Building Exterior Q7

• Locked room or area inside the main entry doors that restricts visitor access into the building
• Except for the exterior entry door(s), all other doors connecting the vestibule to interior school areas or school areas inside the secure perimeter should be locked
• Vestibule can connect directly into the administration suite, provided that doors from the admin to the remainder of the school are locked
• Allows for communication with the check-in control staff (clerk, secretary, principal, etc.) either through direct conversation, camera visual access, or direct visual access to visitors

Building Exterior Q8

B. Visual Privacy Windows
• Windows that limit views into occupied spaces (offices, classrooms, library, gym, cafeteria)
• Glazing that is translucent, not transparent
• Tinted, reflective, or decal glazing
• Permanently installed and operable window blinds, shades, curtains, shutters, cloth, or paper that fully cover the glazed window area. Inoperable paper, cloth, or other materials taped or tacked to windows will not count as providing privacy

C. Intruder resistant windows
• Impact resistant glazing: tempered, wire mesh safety glass, fiberglass reinforced, laminated, bullet resistant film, bullet proof OR
• Windows with glazed areas that are no greater than 12 inches tall or 12 inches wide between framing members OR
• Windows with an exterior sill height greater than 72 inches above existing exterior grade
• Note: Operable windows can be intruder resistant, provided that the unit can be locked and the glazing satisfies any of the above
- Upper floor windows are assumed to be intruder resistant and visually private (if exterior sill height is greater than 6 feet)

Building Exterior Q9

• Manual - paper for visitors to self-report and sign in, state the reason for the visit, relationship with the student, etc.
• Secure, verified - driver's license scanners, with background check software

Building Interior Q10

• Locked from both sides typically means keyed exterior and thumb activated interior locking hardware
• Common areas - hallways, corridors, exterior areas, lobbies, etc.
• Occupied areas - regularly occupied spaces such as classrooms, offices, cafeteria, library, gym, workrooms, etc.
• Not Occupied areas - storage rooms, restrooms, mechanical rooms, electrical rooms, pump rooms, etc.
• Shared doors connecting occupied spaces should have locking hardware, but will not be scored

Building Interior Q11

A. Visual Privacy
• Windows that limit views into occupied spaces (offices, classrooms, library, gym, cafeteria)
• Glazing that is translucent, not transparent
• Tinted, reflective, or decal glazing
• Permanently installed and operable window blinds, shades, curtains, shutters, cloth, or paper that fully cover the glazed window area. Inoperable paper, cloth, or other materials taped or tacked to windows will not count as providing privacy

B. Intruder resistant windows
• Impact resistant glazing: tempered, wire mesh safety glass, fiberglass reinforced, laminated, bullet resistant film, bullet proof OR
• Windows with glazed areas that are no greater than 12 inches tall or 12 inches wide between framing members OR
• Windows with an exterior sill height greater than 72 inches above existing exterior grade

Building Interior Q12

• Fully functional - system must be audible in all interior occupied spaces and exterior site areas - and -
• Fully functional - system must allow for 2-way communication between occupied spaces and the administration office
• Note: if the intercom is not audible or 2-way functional to all interior occupied spaces, it is not fully functional and should be scored 10 or 5
- If the intercom is not fully functional in the interior (1 or more occupied spaces not served), but is fully functional at the exterior, it should be scored 5.
- If the intercom is not fully functional in the interior and the exterior, it should be scored 10
