Ms. Ruhiyya Mahmudova from Azerbaijan shared a cultural lesson with Neo Alaei and classmates in Mr. Ted Krejsa’s Russian II class. Exchanging ideas to enhance teaching skills and increase knowledge of the United States is provided to outstanding secondary education teachers through the Fulbright Teacher Excellence and Achievement Program. This year, Kenston participated in this program with Kent State University hosting five teachers.
Community invited to ALICE Safety Training
Sgt. Frank Chickos of the Bainbridge Police Department trained new staff in methods to keep our students safe and about ALICE (which stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter, evacuate). ALICE is the training method utilized in the Kenston Schools that teaches techniques that can reduce injuries and casualties in the event of an active shooter. ALICE differs from the lockdown/shelter-in-place approach previously used by many districts across the country. ALICE is part of Kenston’s emergency operations plan.
ALICE empowers staff and students to make informed decisions about how to best ensure their own safety during an active shooter event, especially before authorities arrive on the scene or when they are not immediately available.
