A school safety task force in St. Charles County, Mo. has identified a series of recommendations to improve security across local campuses.
The Schools, Mental Health and Emergency Services Task Force was established in December 2012 to study and make suggestions for safety procedures in public and private schools and colleges in the county. The task force met with school officials, as well as mental health and law enforcement authorities, to develop ideas.
According to Dr. Bernard DuBray, Superintendent of the Fort Zumwalt School District and task force chairman, the meetings proved beneficial and played a crucial role in starting the project off in the right direction.
