Parents of North Scott Junior High School were introduced to a safety program that trains teachers and students on what to do in emergency situations.
A.L.I.C.E. stands for Alert, Lock down, Inform, Counter and Evacuate.
It gives teachers the option to judge the situation and determine the best way to handle it.
Teachers could decide if they want to lock down their classrooms or find a way to evacuate.
Teachers have been trained and the next step is to train the students.
"Empowering the teacher to do everything they can to keep the kids and themselves safe is what's a little different with the A.L.I.C.E. program," North Scott Junior High Principal David Griffin said.
A.L.I.C.E. is a new approach for the school and will take several months to implement.
