Perry County School District makes changes to plan for dealing with shooter

Like other school districts nationwide, Perry County School District No. 32 took a “good, hard look” at its emergency procedures after the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Matt Schamburg, district safety coordinator, a Perry County Sheriff’s deputy and a school resource officer, said the district’s safety team considered several options for its response to a shooter. After a presentation by the Perryville Police Department, the district decided on ALICE, which stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate.
