The training will give teachers tools to be proactive and get kids out of the building. ALICE stands for "Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate."
District leaders say you can't fully prepare for that type of a situation, but taking action will increase the chances of surviving. In the event something unthinkable happens, students and teachers will know what to do.
An active shooter situation will be recreated sometime this week giving staff members a crash course in school safety. Starting this fall, all schools in the district will start the ALICE Training. The way it's taught will vary based on grade levels.
Urbana school leaders are considering starting the same program.
