DPI touts school safety recommendations

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (AP) -- The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction is touting new recommendations developed by emergency responders and education officials to help make schools safer.

The recommendations call for creating model policies, practices, and procedures that can be adopted in schools and communities, as well as creating local and statewide crisis response teams, safety planning teams in each school, and specific training for staff.

The recommendations DPI highlighted say schools need to consider controlled access, visitor management, and installing security such as cameras and two-way radios.

Schools are already required to have a safety plan that needs to be reviewed every three years.
