The Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have developed a checklist to assist them in developing and/or improving plans to prepare for and respond to an influenza pandemic. Local educational agencies play an integral role in protecting the health and safety of their district's staff, students and their families. The key planning activities in the checklist build upon existing contingency plans recommended for school districts by the U.S. Department of Education. Further information on pandemic influenza can be found at www.pandemicflu.gov.
