Salem was one of 18 Massachusetts school districts that did not get the emergency plans in to the state on time, according to the report.
As of Feb. 8, all of the necessary materials had been submitted to the state, Salem Superintendent Stephen Russell said Thursday morning.
Schools are required by law (known as Michael's Law) to submit to the state a plan outlining ways they respond to medical emergencies, including details on a rapid communication system, a list emergency contacts, methods for CPR and first aid training as well as the location of defibrillators.
The law was passed in May 2012 following the death of 16-year-old Michael Ellsessar, who suffered cardiac arrest while playing a Sutton High School football game in 2010.
