KODIAK, Alaska (AP) – Twenty percent of high school students in Kodiak reported bringing a weapon to school within the last 30 days, according to an Alaska Department of Health study.
The students’ responses raised concerns during a school board meeting on Monday, the Kodiak Daily Mirror reported .
The Kodiak percentage was nearly double the statewide average of 10.2 percent.
School board chairman Robert Foy said the survey also raised concerns of marijuana use, hard drug use and a lack of parental involvement.
“Some of these things are kind of alarming,’’ Foy said.
