In light of the school shootings in Connecticut, we asked local school officials about security at Central Oregon schools.

 

Jayel Hayden, who coordinates the monthly Safe School Alliance meetings for Deschutes and Crook County schools says ever since the school shooting in Springfield in 1998, they have developed safety procedures to help keep kids safe.  “One of the things that this group has been able to do is be consistent on our evacuation procedures, our lock down procedures. And we, from this group has developed those types of plans for schools and we discussed those and share them with our schools and then school implement them. And that's the same with policy development; we make recommendations back tot he schools."

 

Hayden says he's not sure what can be done about an outsider coming into schools with bad intentions, but they will discuss all options.

 

The Safe School Alliance will meet again this week and he's sure increased security will be on the agenda.
