Lockdown Procedures - ALICE

On January 25, QCUSD hosted a parent night to discuss a new pro-active strategy for lockdown procedures known as ALICE: Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. The ALICE plan offers a different philosophy in response to school violence. 

ALICE encourages the use of technology and information so that staff and students can make life-saving decisions during a time of crisis. The ALICE strategy includes ways for those involved in a crisis to remove themselves as much as possible from the danger zone. Additionally, ALICE provides realistic ongoing training so that students and staff have a better chance of surviving. Prior to ALICE, lockdown procedures involved the staff locking their doors, moving the students to a part of the room where they could not be seen, and quietly remaining there until an “all clear” announcement was given. The ALICE philosophy encourages students and staff to proactively participate in their own safety and survival; and adds options for students and staff during a lockdown situation. 

School site representatives and principals have already been through ALICE training. The first training for teachers is currently taking place. Additional practice and drills will follow after staff and students are all trained. Parent and guardian input is vital for this program to be successful. 

Here is the information shared by QCUSD administration during the ALICE parent meeting.
