FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)  East Allen County Schools will utilize a new program designed to keep students and staff safe in an active shooter incident.

The ALICE School Safety Lockdown Procedure stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate. The concept allows people to make decisions based on the specific crisis that’s happening.

District leaders will present the program at Tuesday’s board meeting.
