Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is ready to announce the recommendations of a committee formed to evaluate school safety in the wake of last year's school shootings in Connecticut and in Chardon in northeast Ohio.
The task force includes educators and police and fire officials ordered to review ways to improve school safety plans.
The plans are schools' responses to a variety of emergencies, from active shooters to fires, accidents, severe weather or medical emergencies.
Clark County Commissioners have agreed to hire two Clark County deputies to provide extra security for county schools. The plan is part of an ongoing effort to make schools safer without having to arm teachers.
The NRA's national effort to arm teachers in public and private schools after the tragic Newtown, Connecticut shootings received support from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, who supported police academy firearms training for school administrators, staff and teachers.
