In Statewide School Safety Report, Tennessee Finds Areas for Improvement
By Jason Gonzales
Tennessee's safety assessment of its schools identified surveillance, as well as vehicle and access control to buildings as areas for improvement.
"It is possible that schools scored the lowest in these particular domains because they include measures that require the greatest fiscal resources to implement," says the report released on Wednesday.
The report takes a broad look at the first-ever security assessment of every school in the state. It was issued in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting that left 17 dead and part of a recommendation from a group formed by Gov. Bill Haslam.
