The Bettendorf Community School District is looking to keep it's students and staff safer in possible situations involving an armed intruder.

The plan is to integrate the A.L.I.C.E. safety program; Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate.

The District has procedures for handling such scenarios, but Superintendent, Dr. Theron J. Schutte, wants to stay vigilant to keep students and the school safe.

"We are committed to reviewing, revising and developing plans, procedures and protocols to prevent or mitigate the exposure to harm in our schools."

According to district officials, The Bettendorf Police Department, Scott County Sherriff's Department, and The City of Bettendorf all encourage schools to integrate the A.L.I.C.E. program.

They say the police liaisons, security officers, and secondary administrators have received official training.

The middle and high school staff and the Bettendorf Board of Education have also received an overview of the program and the district's elementary staff members are being introduced to A.L.I.C.E. at an inservice in January.

The district will host two public meetings to help the community learn more about A.L.I.C.E. The meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, January 29 and Wednesday, January 30, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Mississippi Bend AEA, located at 800 23rd St., Bettendorf.
