DeWine: Some school safety plans “useless”

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says some school safety plans would be “useless” in an active shooter emergency.

The Columbus Dispatch reports DeWine on Monday said some schools have great plans, but others have procedures that would be difficult to follow because they are too long.

Schools are required by state law to file safety plans, but they are not penalized if they do not file them.

DeWine says 180 school buildings have plans on file that have not been updated in at least three years and 56 others have incomplete plans.

DeWine was speaking at a school safety and emergency management planning conference. His office has organized dozens of training sessions for teachers and school personnel to teach them how to recognize and respond in a potential shooting.
