School safety takes another step
School safety has been kicked up a notch with the passage of a new law requiring school districts to have school shooting drills.
On July 1, Gov. Pat Quinn signed a new law which requires Illinois schools to hold active safety drills with local law enforcement agencies to ensure they are as prepared as possible in the event of a shooting incident. The new shooting drill must take place in each school building where students are taught, and must occur during the academic year.
Previously, each school had to conduct a minimum of six drills each year, including three school fire evacuation drills, a bus evacuation drill, a severe weather/shelter-in-place drill, and a law enforcement drill.
