LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The Lafayette School Corporation is searching for the best way to protect its students and staff when facing any sort of threat.
Throughout the school year many specialized trainings have been researched to see what would be the best fit.
LSC has narrowed it down to two options between ALICE training and CRASE.
Monday at the school board's work session Lafayette police demonstrated the pros and cons of each program.
Both teach proactive response strategies that do not include confrontation of the threat.
ALICE training was used most recently at Noblesville West Middle School.
LSC's superintendent said something has to be done to best prepare for any form of violence in the schools.
"We want the adults to have some type of training so that they can react in the most appropriate way possible," said Les Huddle.
A decision will be made by the next school year, but it will take a few years for the program to be implemented because of training.
