The article analyzes the impact in the educational institutions of the earthquake which took place in February 27th, 2010 in Chile. In this sense, the object of this paper is not only to review the role of schooling institutions once the seism happens ?as a meeting place, shelter, etc.? but mainly, what happens on its aftermath in terms of reconstruction of the schools on one hand, but also on the redefinitions on the educational policies regarding risk and disasters management. In a transversal way, two fundamental concepts are analyzed: how vulnerability appears in the booklets and specific materials developed for the prevention of disasters at schools, and the one of social participation, that is, which specific role acquired the civil society collaborating in the reconstruction of damaged schools.
