ALICE training almost complete

MONROE - The Monroe school district will finish training students this week in how to take an active role in their survival in situations with a dangerous person in school buildings. The training, called A.L.I.C.E., teaches individuals to make decisions during an attacker situation - such as a school shooting - that uses their particular situation to their advantage. It includes communicating with others to track the attacker's movements, making barricades, distracting the attacker or evacuating, depending on what's viable at the time.
