09/21/20 Getting more than one grant? No double dipping allowed...

 

09/21/20: The Borough's CARES Act Relief Fund grant program allows small businesses and nonprofits to apply for a grant regardless if you've applied for other state or federal assistance programs as a result of COVID-19 economic impacts.

Just remember to keep separate accounting and backup documentation for each grant that you receive... don't use the same bag of receipts for the different grants that you may receive.

Federal funds cannot be used to pay for the exact same cost or activity already paid for from another source of funding. This is sometimes referred to as duplication of benefits (DOB) or “double-dipping.” Entities using multiple funding sources should be aware of the different authorities and program requirements for each funding source, being careful to avoid DOB in instances where they are paying for similar costs or activities from multiple sources. If you're a small business or nonprofit located in an unincorporated community, visit https://cares.kpb.us to learn about the borough's grant program or to submit an application. You may also call the Grants Division at 907-714-2153.

7/23/20 Weekly KPBSD Update: 3 KPBSD School Choices, plus 7 Questions

Dear KPBSD students, families, and staff,

 

As planning continues to open 42 KPBSD schools, and the science and spread of COVID19 in Alaska continues to change, you likely have questions and concerns. One size does not fit everyone, and COVID19 is creating challenges we have never lived through. Together we will create solutions and help you choose the best option for learning this fall.

 

We understand education during a global pandemic requires adaption, a flexible mindset, and serious decisions. We promise to communicate and be proactive, even when we do not have all the answers. Toward that end to assist you, a dedicated phone number and email address that will reach district office to respond to your COVID19 and school choice questions is now available—look in the question section for the contacts. School principals and secretaries return to work the week of July 28, and school staff return later in August.

 

Included in your weekly update is a new flyer with the Three Flexible Solutions for School in the KPBSD, and responses to seven common questions. We know some of you will need devices or internet—the survey next week will help determine your needs so the district can assist.

 

July 23, 2020 KPBSD Weekly Update: Three Flexible Solutions for School in 2020-2021 during a Global Pandemic

 

Which K-12 learning option will be best for you? Download and read the flyer

·       ONSITE at Your KPBSD School
Learning at your neighborhood school, charter school, or non-traditional KPBSD school

 

·       100% Remote with Your KPBSD School
Learning with your neighborhood school, charter school, or non-traditional KPBSD school

 

·       HOMESCHOOL: Enrollment in KPBSD Connections Homeschool program
Learning is designed by families with a Connections Teacher Advisor and facilitated by parents

 

 

Seven Questions

Q: Can I change once I decide?
Yes. If you need flexibility to change between options, KPBSD wants you to be successful and you can make a change

 

Q: Will face coverings be required when school begins in August?

Superintendent O’Brien and the district leadership planning team are currently reviewing the science and recommendations from CDC, DHSS, DEED, and public input about requiring face coverings to be worn in the school environment. An update to the SmartStart plan is forthcoming, and will be shared in the communication next week.

 

Q: Help Desk
We know many of you want to talk to your school principal, secretary, or teachers, prior to making a decision. Principals and secretaries begin returning to work on or after July 28, and teachers return in August. If you need help deciding what is best for you and your children, have questions, or simply need someone to hear your thoughts and concerns, the district office is open. For your specific COVID19 and school related questions, call 907-714-8864, email us at covid19@kpbsd.org, or visit covid19.kpbsd.org. For general questions, the main KPBSD office number is 907-714-8888

 

Q: When do I need to choose?
You will receive an online update form next week, and can complete it any time prior to the start of school. Through the form, you can also update student contact information, indicate what access you need for internet and learning devices, and indicate your choice for school beginning in August 2020

 

Q: When will schools close in high COVID19 risk level?

·       Always open: The 100% Remote with Your KPBSD School, and the KPBSD Connections Homeschool, will be open during all risk levels

·       Pivot needed: The ONSITE at Your KPBSD School will close to students during high COVID19 risk, and shift to 100% Remote Learning through the Virtual Classroom

 

Q: Can I receive school meals if schools close during High COVID19 risk?

Yes. We are planning to implement the “Get-it and Go” meals if schools need to close to students during high COVID19 risk

 

Q: How do you determine COVID19 Risk Levels on the Kenai Peninsula?

KPBSD implemented an operational plan to indicate low, medium, or high risk of COVID-19 community transmission in a geographical region or school based on 14 day averages and seven day trends. Decisions are based on state data, and local current information from the DHSS and public health. Beginning August 1, updates will be made daily, posted on the KPBSD website, and changes in risk level communicated to our families, staff, and publics. A visual map of the Kenai Peninsula risk level in our 42 schools is in development, and will be live online no later than August 1, 2020

7/23/20 Information on Tuesday's Tsunami Warnings and Advisories


The residents of the Kenai Peninsula Borough rose to the occasion as usual this past Tuesday night, as most of our mobile phones alerted us to a potential tsunami and directed residents to high ground. The warning was issued as a result of a 7.8 earthquake near the Aleutian chain and affected the southern Kenai Peninsula around Kachemak Bay. A tsunami advisory, a lesser level of alert, was in effect for the Seward and Resurrection Bay communities. Residents and visitors in low-lying areas took heed of the warning and moved to high ground, with first responders around the Borough reporting everyone left the low-lying areas quickly and calmly. All of the tsunami warnings and advisories were cancelled by 1 a.m.

The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is a Borough agency tasked with the coordination and management of natural and man-made emergencies within the political boundaries of the Kenai Peninsula Borough. During disaster events, OEM distributes information through our KPB Alerts platform and coordinates with all of the first response agencies to ensure that everyone is kept safe and informed.

Tsunami inundation areas for the Kenai Peninsula Borough are generally around Kachemak Bay and Resurrection Bay. Generally, tsunami zones do not extend up the Cook Inlet to Anchor Point, Ninilchik, or other central peninsula communities. Many residents in the central peninsula asked why they received such an urgent warning if they live outside of the danger zone – the answer to that question has some complex and technical reasons, but it can generally be attributed to our large size and governance structure.

The federal warning system that uses radio stations and wireless phones to disseminate alerts is built for use nationwide, and for the most part uses counties to determine where to send a message. While in the lower 48 this allows for a relatively targeted message, here in Alaska our Borough is the size of a small state. Unfortunately, that means the only option is to send a message to the entire area, instead of just the specific tsunami inundation areas.

In addition to the federal warning messages, subscribers to our KPB Alerts notification system may have also received a phone call or text clarifying the specific areas under threat. Unlike the federal alerting, KPB Alerts is able to geographically target messages. During an event such as this large earthquake and warnings, this may have resulted in multiple messages or phone calls. The overall goal is to ensure communities receive the right information – especially in such a potentially hazardous event like a tsunami.

At the federal level, improvements are being made to refine alerting beyond such an “all or none” solution. At the Borough, we continue to identify any lessons learned and then implement new protocols, procedures, and technologies to ensure safety for all residents and visitors. If you have not yet signed up for KPB Alerts, you can register your mobile phone to one or more physical addresses to get warnings for that area at https://alerts.kpb.us. For updated information during emergencies, please like and follow KPB Alerts on Facebook and Twitter.
