Community forum to discuss school safety


FINDLAY-The community came together Wednesday night to discuss how to prevent a tragedy and what to do if one occurs.

For more than two hours law enforcement, lawmakers, teachers and parents discussed how best to protect kids.

School leaders and law enforcement saying they have plans in place if a crisis happens. They mentioned they did a lock down drill at Okaw Valley Middle School just last week.

Parents asked questions ranging from concerns about bullying and mental health to infrastructure problems. Many asking about how to make old buildings more secure by adding buzzer systems, locking doors and installing modern windows.

High School principal Eric Bruder says it'll take everyone to work together even after the meeting is over to make improvements.

Much of the conversation centered on how to make the improvements with a limited budget, but many parents saying they wanted to protect their kids at any cost.
