Kenosha Unified School District- Kenosha, WI

Kenosha Unified School District is developing a training plan to teach all 22,000 students in its schools what to do in the event of an active shooter. The district already requires administrators and teachers to go through the training, but this is the first time it will be extended to students. The training course is called ALICE, which stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter, and evacuate. The district recently experienced a false alarm that put the protocol into action. Last Friday Indian Trail High School and Academy was put on lock down, but the threat turned out to be a hoax. School officials said that in the case of an attack, teachers and students need to work together quickly in order to ensure their safety. The training will help make sure everyone is prepared.
