Bulletin ~ NO~ Wednesday, March 28, 2001 113.8, I BB Nacar Task Force, ~formed three years ago t bomb threat and racial I at Portola High School, its work toward all Portola schools a students. 20 collaborative attended the meeting March 21, to dis- latest school shooting Diego, to review what accomplished during three years and to pri- and objectives for beginning, the Com- r Task Force was made high school and ~ school administrators, city officials, students then, it has grown to C. Roy Carmichael El- school administra- staff, the C. Roy P.T.A., Jim Beck- High School, the County Sheriff's De- the Plumas Unified District school board, Plumas Health the Portola Fire Pacific Bell, Sier- Power Company, the County District Attor- and the California Patrol. Task Force have been instru- in increasing the visa- bility of the Plumas County Sheriffs Department around school campuses and, accord- ing to City Administrator Jim Murphy, that could increase even more next year as the re- sult of a new contract between the city and the sheriff's de- partment. The city is agreeing to pay for two additional officers, who would stay in the city full time unless needed for emergency backup. The task force conducted a parent workshop with county crisis personnel and high school administrators at the re- quest of parents. The workshop focused on hate-motivated behavior, sub- stance abuse, crime preven- tion, intervention and support services for families and stu- dents. There were two disaster drills at Portola High School to increase disaster readiness. City staff, fire, ambulance, school district and law enforce- ment personnel participated in the drills and critiqued the school's preparedness. The task force was instru- mental in integrating the Fri- day Night Live club at the high school into student govern- ment. Friday Night Live promotes substance-free choices for teens at Portola High School, sponsoring several events throughout the school year. Since the formation of the task force, the phone system at Portola High School has been upgraded, providing communi- cation to all the classrooms. There has also been a com- munication link created be- tween Portola High School and parents in the event of an emergency. Along with the administra- tion, the task force helped iden- tify the safety site needs of the school to the district superin- tendent of schools and strengthened the dress code at the school. Plumas County Sheriff's Deputy Chad Hermann report- ed to the group that he had re- cenfly attended classes focused on responding to an active shooting such as what hap- pened in San Diego. Hermann said if that were to happen here, mobilizing the SWAT team would take too lofig, so deputies and Califor- nia Highway Patrol will be re- sponding. "We are in the process of try- ing to set something up so we can educate the schools and the rest 5f the county as to how we will handle such a situa- tion," he said. Deputy District Attorney Jeff Cunan and Investigations Supervisor Kris Beebe said the Plumas County District Attor- ney's office is completing a set of protocols on handling such situations both before (to pre- vent an incident) and after, and will be working closely with law enforcement, schools and other entities to make sure Plumas County is a safe place for students. Beebe said the district attor. ney's office is continuing to conduct a follow-up investiga- tion on a recent incident at Portola High School, in which an anonymous call was re- ceived regarding a "shoot list." The Plumas County Sheriffs Department was contacted im- mediately and a multi-agency response was implemented, in- cluding the sheriff's depart- ment, district attorney, county mental health, school district office, school psychologist and task force. "An investigation was con- ducted and it was determined that there was not a risk to stu- dents and/or staff at Portola High School and that the list was, in fact, not a 'shoot list,'" said Thomas. The Community Task Force will continue working toward making the school and the community prepared for any type of disaster and presented a list of tentative projects. Those included: disaster readiness for all campuses; a secret witness number; coun- seling; prevention programs; a phone tree at all schools; a closed campus; a new cafeteria for Portola High School; door knobs that lock from the inside for all classrooms; chemical venting for the chemistry lab; drug testing of student ath- letes; escape routs; and emer- gency vehicle access to all school areas. School board member Bob Marshall said the locks for the classrooms have been ordered and that Portola High School is scheduled to add a counselor to the staff next year. " The next meeting of the Com- munity Task Force is sched. uled for Wednesday, April 16, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Portola Library. Ctmler E (x Despite uncertainties in its expanding district area, the Peninsula Fire District Board hopes a Measure A increase won't be necessary. The current rates--S97 for developed and $82 for unimproved property--will remain" valid until the measure expires in June 2002. Fire Chief Gary Pini's projections showed that the district would be able to continue without an increase, but he ad- mitted that many factors remained uncer- tain. Mike Roarty cautioned fellow members against banking on potential revenue from the new developments coming into the dis- trier. If one of these projects were to fold, he warned, the district's funds would be se- verely affected. Roarty noted that it would be possible to write into the new measure an option to amend the amount through another vote. What the board needed to address, he said, was whether to pass another five-year mea- sure, which would lock in a rate, or to exer- cise their option by bringing the item be- fore voters every one or two years. Whether the board decides to ask for an increase or not, the public will most likely vote on a new measure in November. According to Pini, Measure A funds ac- count for roughly half of the district's bud- get. Earmarked for vehicle replacement, the revenue helped buy the district's new res- cue squad.
