“The primary goal of Ada Public Schools is to collaborate with the City of Ada and Pontotoc County in identifying potential natural hazards and developing mitigation action plans that would prevent or soften the impact of the identified hazards on school sites that comprise the Ada Public School District.”
“Particularly, Ada Public Schools would like to develop safe rooms/buildings to protect school communities from weather related hazards. These safe structures during non-emergency times could be used to enhance instruction, and provide much needed space for fine arts programs, student activities, spectator events, and community meetings.”
