The Bexley City School District has a number of features in place in each building to maintain students' safety including:
- Requirement that staff members wear identification tags at all times when students are present
- Visitor identification name tags issued when visitors register at the main entrance of the building
- Identisys TPASSK12 system and check-in procedures requiring all visitors to the schools to swipe into tracking system software using a government-issued photo state ID/driver's license. Military IDs and passport IDs do not work.
The district works closely with the Bexley Police Department on crisis planning measures. School principals frequently review with their staffs procedures for the drills or threats for situations such as lockdowns, bomb threats, bio threat, fire, and tornado drills. Bexley Schools' Crisis Plan includes procedures for each of these, as well as a Pandemic Influenza Plan. The district conducts regular safety audits.
