6-30-22 — June 2022 Annual End of Fiscal Year Meeting Review

June 30, 2022 ~ The Olathe Board of Education met June 29 for its annual end of fiscal year meeting. The agenda included a presentation on the CrisisAlert Notification system, safety and security upgrades, contract renewals, bids for sports equipment and AED units, as well as the possibility of adjusting boundaries for board member districts.

Safety Services Presentation

Director of Safety Services Brent Kiger presented on CrisisAlert, a safety solution by CENTEGIX.

The CrisisAlert platform is an incident alerting solution that empowers teachers and staff to call for help with the push of a button on a badge they will wear in addition to their ID badge they wear daily. This simple push of a button provides school/district administration, school resource officers, and other first responders with precise location information of the impacted staff member, enabling them to respond quickly in any situation. With the CrisisAlert badge, staff members will be able to alert administration for everyday student and staff events such as medical emergencies or in a crisis situation, staff would be able to initiate campus-wide lockdowns at the touch of a button.

The Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a contract with CENTEGIX to implement CrisisAlert for the upcoming 2022-2023 school year. Click here to learn more.
