School Safety

New Safety Protocol


Baltimore County Public Schools, in partnership with the Baltimore County Police Department, is adopting the option-based “ALICE” response protocol to assist those in harm’s way in the unlikely event of an active assailant.  Individuals would respond based on information that they have at hand regarding the situation.  ALICE stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter, and evacuate.  These measures provide the knowledge and skills needed to make the best decisions available for the safety of students, staff, and visitors.
