Pursuant to the Domestic Security Preparedness Act signed into law on October 4, 2001, the New Jersey Domestic Security Preparedness Task Force adopted domestic security and preparedness standards, guidelines and protocols (Best Practices) on January 5, 2006 for schools under construction or being planned for construction. These Best Practices were approved for use by then Acting Governor Richard J. Codey on January 6, 2006. At this time, schools under construction or being planned for construction are required to comply with the requirements of the Best Practices.
