The USD 480 school board is being proactive when it comes to being prepared for unwelcome intruders. The board voted to go into a contract with ALICE for how to prepare staff and students if an armed intruder or active shooter is in a school. The contract costs 10 thousand dollars and allows the district updated training through ALICE until July of 2019. Each school has a crisis team.
