This study examined two rural Texas school district crisis teams’ evaluation of their level of preparedness for the event of a crisis. Eight research participants were evaluated using a qualitative exploratory case study design that was employed using a grounded theory while taking a pragmatic theoretical approach. The research questions included the following: (a) To what degree do district crisis team members agree that items on the Comprehensive Crisis Plan Checklist-2 (CCPC-2) are represented in the district crisis plan? (b) How does a school district crisis intervention team utilize the CCPC-2? (c) How does the CCPC-2 facilitate a discussion about the school district crisis intervention plan? (d) How are the results of the CCPC-2 used within the district in relation to the school district crisis intervention plan? It was hypothesized that the CCPC-2 would demonstrate a strong level of interrater reliability agreement (.80 to .90). It was also hypothesized that the school district crisis intervention team would utilize the CCPC-2 results to amend inconsistencies amongst raters for a stronger Emergency Operation Plan (EOP) plan. Furthermore, it was hypothesized that the CCPC-2 would foster and encourage communication amongst raters to develop a more thorough intervention plan that makes sense for the district and, at least in theory, would be more likely to be used effectively in the event of a crisis. Lastly, it was hypothesized that the results of the CCPC-2 would be used to create changes or additions in the district’s crisis intervention plan.
