Who determines whether or not a school should be evacuated?

In the event of an emergency at or near a school, the school administrator has the discretion to impose an evacuation.  However; in some cases, the administrator will follow the direction of law enforcement and/or emergency response agencies in determining whether or not to evacuate the facility.
