The Allegheny Valley School District’s Emergency Management Plan teaches responses to many varied crisis situations that could occur throughout the District. The goal is to put in place options that can be used for different circumstances. Evacuation, lockdown, and other procedures are explained and reviewed so that teachers and students can make the best possible decisions for their safety in the event of an emergency.
The purpose of ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evaluate) training is to prepare individuals to handle the threat of an armed intruder. ALICE teaches individuals to participate in their own security, while leading others to safety. Resources are utilized so that procedures can be taught in an age-appropriate environment.
