'Active Killer' Training Passed by School Board

The Rapid City School Board has approved a new training program to prepare Rapid City Area School students and staff for how to react to 'active killer' situations. According to the Rapid City Journal, the program is referred to as ALICE, or Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate. It is designed to help inform staff and students of any imminent threat as it's occuring and give them options to avoid the threat however possible. The current system calls for a lockdown, the turning off of lights in the classrooms, and locking the doors until the threat is gone. Read the meeting agenda here.
