School Safety Training Begins Today

Jan 17, 2013

The state Attorney General and Education Department are launching the first of five regional sessions to train educators to respond to school shootings.

More than 200 people registered for the first sessions, scheduled for today in Columbus. Officials say planning for the training began after the February shootings at Chardon High School. They say the December Connecticut school shootings created a surge in interest and accelerated scheduling of the sessions.
