WNLS Staff To Receive ALICE Training
WNLS Staff To Receive ALICE Training
Washington-Nile Local Schools
Wednesday, April 03, 2019

During April 2019, a team of 7 administrators and teacher-leaders (representing all 3 district schools) will be attending Advanced ALICE Training hosted by the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office. The acronym ALICE stands for: Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate or run-hide-fight. The purpose of advanced ALICE training is to educate local and school-based law enforcement, as well as church, hospital, and workplace administrators and safety professionals about our researched-based, proactive response approach to Violent Intruder events.

The ALICE training program is designed to supplement current "Lock-down" or Secure-in-Place " Procedures currently used in our school’s Homeland Security approved Emergency Operations Plan (EOP). This 2-Day Instructor training course will teach participants the skills and strategies necessary to increase survivability during the gap between the time a violent event begins, and law enforcement arrives. Following our staff completion of this course, our seven representatives will help lead and facilitate an ALICE practical exercise at an upcoming teacher professional development session in which all staff will participate. The safety of our children and staff are of paramount importance to our district.
