Kenosha Unified is planning informational sessions in which the public can learn about its active shooter response system. The sessions were announced by Superintendent Sue Savaglio-Jarvis at Tuesday night’s school board meeting (2/27/18). She said that the sessions are designed to help lay out the plan for the public as well as offer resources for students who may be uncomfortable at school. The first session will be at the Educational Support Center on March 14th, with additional sessions on March 19th at Tremper, and March 28th at Reuther. The active shooting response is known as ALICE-standing for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate. The information sessions are part of the district’s response to the shooting in Parkland, Florida in which 17 high school students and staff were killed.
Dr Sue also said during last night’s meeting that she’s aware of student walkouts that are planned for March 14th-the one month anniversary of the Florida shooting. She said that classes will continue as normal that day, as will regular attendance policies. Reiterating that false threats made by students could result in felony charges, the superintendent said that district officials will meet with local law enforcement and inform the board about those meetings.
