Imagine dealing with an auto repair in the same way we purchase our health care. Let’s say your car begins to have problems and you’re worried the thing could leave you stranded with no transportation. You make an appointment at a dealer, and based on your car’s symptoms the first available time to talk to a mechanic is 3 weeks from today at 2:00pm. When the date finally arrives, you’re not called from the lobby until 2:45, and the mechanic has to see another 10 people before 5:00, so he’s in a bit of a rush. He presents you with several repair options, but when you ask about cost he tells you that he doesn’t know — you’ll get a bill about a month after the work is done for an amount somewhere between $50 and $500.

Superintendent, Kent Taylor from Lennox School District plays an active role in keeping the students of his district safe by serving on the district’s Safety Committee, along with other leaders, staff and faculty within the district. Lennox SD is located in an unincorporated area of Los Angeles in the flight path of LAX, yet has busy, narrow, urban streets with schools very near the 405 freeway – a difficult area to access during an emergency.
Superintendent Taylor posed to the safety committee that “it is our priority to keep students and staff safe even during the worst situations. We need to have updated plans in place and then practice.” The Lennox team turned to their ASCIP partner for assistance and began to plan a drill – a shooter on campus scenario at their middle school.
