480 Board Makes Plans with ALICE for Training

KSCB News - March 22, 2016 6:07 am

The USD 480 school board is being proactive when it comes to being prepared for unwelcome intruders. The board voted to go into a contract with ALICE for how to prepare staff and students if an armed intruder or active shooter is in a school. The contract costs 10 thousand dollars and allows the district updated training through ALICE until July of 2019. Each school has a crisis team.

The district is preparing to tear down MacArthur Elementary and replace it with a new building. The project will begin at the end of the school year in May and will begin with asbestos abatement. Myriad Restoration got the low bid at $94,500.00

The board approved the purchase of furniture for libraries at Eisenhower Middle School for $95,623.20 and Prairie View Elementary School for $35,578.64 from national furniture provider Hale Manufacturing.

The district approved purchase for art furniture for art rooms in both middle schools. The price tag is $12,802.75.00 from Southern Office Supply.
