There will be an informational meeting to discuss adding A.L.i.C.E. to Wayne Local School District’s emergency operation plan on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, 7:00 p.m. in the Waynesville High School Gym.

Channel 5 WLWT has done a media piece discussing some of the topics:

Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate;
A.L.i.C.E. is an acronym that represents an alternative way of responding to a crisis through five concepts: Alert, Lockdown, inform, Counter and Evacuate. The A.L.i.C.E. training method emphasizes that the best way to survive an active-violent situation is to evacuate when the opportunity exists rather than simply lockdown and hide. If students and staff cannot evacuate then they should be educated about various options. The A.L.i.C.E. program will not call for armed teachers or staff members, and the district is not considering that option. Wayne Local continues to have a partnership with Waynesville Police Dept.; police officers are regularly on our campus. The A.L.i.C.E. program does not change anything about the way law enforcement responds to an emergency but it does teach students and teachers to take responsibility for their safety. In the past Wayne Local practiced an evacuation moving all students to off-site facilities in the Village of Waynesville. The next step of our planning is to introduce and practice age appropriate A.L.i.C.E. activities. On Thursday, April 10th the high school and middle school will go into our typical lockdown practice. Mr. Gebhardt will come over the P.A. and tell all students/staff that we are in a lockdown situation and that it is just a drill. Teachers will lock doors and get all students out of view from windows facing the hallway. Mr. Gebhardt will then introduce over the P.A. some A.L.i.C.E. principles; students will only listen. Mr. Gebhardt will then announce the drill is over. A “lock down” drill message will also be seen on the High School/Middle School message boards out front. The electronic boards are a part of our emergency procedures. The elementary will not participate in the April 10th drill. Early next year the district will add more components to our drills; including practice evacuations. The addition of A.L.i.C.E. puts the district in line with the other school districts in Warren County. Resources from the Warren County Sheriff’s Department have helped local school districts to revise and upgrade their emergency operation plans. District staff will go through training before starting actual practice activities with students during the 2014/15 school year. Please try to attend this very important meeting to learn more about A.L.i.C.E. Representatives from law enforcement will also be in attendance.
