Kettle Falls School District EP&O Levy and Capital Levy for Security/Technology February 12, 2019
The purpose of an Educational Programs and Operations (EP&O) levy is to provide general operating funds that supplement state and federal funding for public schools. Levies were intended to provide for extras beyond basic education, but have become a significant funding source for most school districts due to diminishing funding from the state and federal government.
The purpose of the capital levy for Security/ Technology is to pay for security and technology equipment including hardware and software. Although cameras have been installed in each building, there are limited outdoor cameras at the High School. Like the High School, we are also planning on installing a doorbell camera at the Middle School. The funds for technology will pay for educational software and scheduled network and security hardware and software upgrades.

ALICE Training for Staff
Kettle Falls School District, like many districts, has spent a lot of time examining school safety and security over the last several years, and the district is making investments to help ensure a secure, nurturing learning environment.
Currently, all Kettle Falls schools conduct safety drills such as fire, earthquake, and shelter in place . This school year we are starting to train staff how to handle active shooter situations.
In October, three members of the District Administrative Team attended an intense two day ALICE training, to become certified trainers. ALICE (which stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter, evacuate), is a training method that teaches techniques that can reduce injuries and casualties in the event of an active shooter.
Though we remain hopeful a school safety event, such as an active shooter, is something that we never have to face, we must do our best to prepare and train for such an event to provide the highest level of safety for our students and staff.
On Wednesday, January 2nd we conducted an all staff training in the morning from 7:30 – 8:30 during our late start time. The training was held at the High School.
