Department of Operations and Security

 
The Department of Operations and Security is responsible for managing all building and ground operations for the Willoughby-Eastlake City School District.   There are 16 buildings and over 275 acres of land that are managed by this department.
 
The department has been working hard to improve security across the district.   Some of the security initiatives that the department is working on:  
  • Continuing to update district emergency protocols on our cloud based system
  • Continuing to roll out a comprehensive visitor management system
  • Working on designs to secure school entrances
  • Continue to enhance ALICE training for staff and students annually
Last summer the department oversaw the following building projects:
  • North High School Home Stands & Press Box (Summer 2017)
  • Window and Exterior Door replacements at six schools (Summer 2017)
  • NCI Willoughby Renovations (Summer 2017)
  • Development of design and construction documents for new buildings - Longfellow, North HS and South HS - Ground Breaking (Summer 2017)
 

What is ALICE?

ALICE Training Videos

The purpose of ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) training is to prepare individuals to handle the threat of an active shooter in the building. ALICE teaches individuals to participate in their own survival, while leading others to safety. Though no one can guarantee success in this type of situation, this new set of skills will greatly increase the odds of survival should anyone face this most unfortunate situation. We strongly believe that we have a responsibility to keep our students as safe as possible.
