Kenai Peninsula Borough School District- Kenai, AK

Training for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District’s new intruder response procedure has now reached parents and educators. Kenai police Sgt. Jay Sjogren presented on ALICE protocol, which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate, to parents and teachers at the Mountain View Elementary School Site Council meeting Thursday. The program is modeled as a proactive, multi-optional response to active shooter scenarios, Sjogren said. “We all know in this day and age this is the reality,” Sjogren said. “ALICE gives you more tools for your tool belt, a way to come to a resolution and make personal decisions as elementary educators.” Last August principals, local law enforcement and school district administration received the first round of education and training for ALICE. Alaska State Troopers and municipal police were designated within the school district as the primary trainers for staff and students in individual schools and classrooms. Read more
