CHARLESTON, W.Va. - U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin released his plan to keep West Virginia's schools safe Tuesday afternoon.
The agenda, a result of a February summit on safe schools called by Goodwin in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, outlines 10 points that could improve school safety.
"A lot of ideas were discussed, a lot of ideas have been discussed since, and this report is really kind of the culmination of those discussions," Goodwin said.
"And they're practical things, things that can be implemented mostly on a local level, because that's what is critical."
Goodwin is pushing schools and officials to:
* Establish a single, locked point of entry for every building.
* Install doors in classrooms that can be quickly locked, or keep the existing doors locked at all times.
* Install emergency buttons to broadcast emergencies and notify authorities.
* Explore shatter-resistant paneling for glass windows and doors.
* Place more law enforcement officers in schools in resource positions.
* Build established relationships between schools and law enforcement.
* Conduct regular active-shooter drills at least annually.
* Develop a statewide program to identify potentially violent students and intervene.
