Alsea School District recently participated in a safety inspection that was paid for by grant funding for small rural schools through the Willamette Educational School District. This statewide project is intended to help schools who might not otherwise have the funding to develop a safety plan.
ASD is delighted to announce that the district passed with flying colors.
This school year has included many safety upgrades at the school facility including installation of a schoolwide emergency intercom system, re-establishing a school resource officer for the district and a new keypad/fob system that allows doors in the main building to be locked down immediately and independently in the event of an emergency.
Alsea School District plans to expend some capital improvement dollars on fencing for the school.
“The safety of our students and staff is the highest priority. Erecting fencing around the campus allows the district to shield students from Highway 34 traffic and better screen exposure to the general public,” said Sean Gallagher, interim superintendent.
