What is ALICE?

  • After a great deal of research on how to best address armed intruder training for school sites and staff, we adopted and implemented a comprehensive training program called ALICE. ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate. The ALICE training standard takes a departure from the traditional lockdown process that was in place in the District. ALICE embraces active decision making on the part of the staff and older students to address an armed intruder including an active shooter situation or threatening scenario.

    We hosted parent meetings on March 28 and March 29, 2018, to discuss school safety in more detail and inform parents and community members about our ALICE protocols. Click here for the video from the presentation on March 28, 2018, at Truckee High School.
