It's the ALICE system: Alert (an announcement that there is a lockdown, along w/ the description & location of the threat/ Lockdown/ Inform (continued info on where intruder is) Counter- if you are not able to evacuate, barricade your class using desks & chairs & find whatever you can to use against the threat (things to throw at him) And finally, Evacuate- get out & go to a designated area.
It''s sad that it's come to this but the new procedures will empower the teachers & students& help them be better prepared in case, God forbid, something like that were to happen.

The school I work at has been doing two practice lock downs every year for the past two years. Last year we had to do a real perimeter lock down due to a murder in the area.

Oh, I forgot to mention, they did change the lock down procedure slightly (I can't say how they changed it), but they don't evacuate.
