Sound Off: School security
I am wondering what kind of measures have been taken here in Lawrence schools regarding security. After the Sandy Hook tragedy, have there been added measures taken?
Lawrence Superintendent Rick Doll said the district has security plans in place to deal with a range of emergency situations, including intruders in the building. However, school officials declined to discuss the specifics of those plans for publication. Improving security in elementary schools is also one of the elements of a districtwide improvement plan that the Lawrence school board hopes to fund with a bond proposal they will put before voters in April. People who have specific questions or concerns about security issues at any school may contact the building principal or the district office.
