School Committee Meeting

Message from the Superintendent
The best way to be and feel as safe as possible in our schools is to be ever vigilant. Therefore, last night the School Committee approved two additional half days for the full implementation of ALICE training for this school year for the Abington Public Schools. ALICE training is a response to the threat of a violent intruder in schools, businesses or public areas. It is a universal response that provides people with options in the event that they are in danger.
The attached PowerPoint provides some information regarding ALICE training.
ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. More information will be forthcoming in the weeks and months ahead including an evening for parents and guardians to get information and ask questions.
Although nationally only about 25% of schools have shifted from traditional Lockdown to ALICE, it is the predominantly recommended program among emergency agencies and safety task forces around the country. The goal is to complete the training across the district and with students by the close of this school year.
