Disaster Prevention and Recovery


Definition: The disaster prevention and recovery plan details how technology services will be rebuilt or repaired after a disaster.

What This Means: A disaster prevention and recovery plan in an educational setting is necessary to mitigate the negative effect of not having access to information. Some examples are: denial of services to a student who is moved after an event occurs, payroll checks not being issued on time, incorrect district or school accountability ratings.
