At Milaca Public Schools (ISD 912), the safety of our students, staff, and visitors is among our highest priorities. We work collaboratively to foster a safe, secure learning environment as we deliver on our mission to educate, inspire and empower our diverse learners.
This year, Milaca Public Schools has started the implementation process of a more proactive approach when responding to threats of school violence. Such events may include active shooter situations and other imminent threats to safety that require schools to lockdown. District and school administrators, along with all staff, are being educated in a program called ALICE response. This is a less passive approach to a crisis situation that provides our staff more options based on the circumstances of the incident. The ALICE acronym stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. The threat of an active shooter or intruder in our schools is rare but, in today’s society, a reality. Therefore, empowering our staff with proactive response strategies, rather than a passive one-size fits all approach is a positive change to our district’s emergency response and crisis management plans. Ultimately, we hope to never have to utilize an emergency response plan, but in the event we do, please be assured that staff are well prepared to act in the best interests and safety of our students.
