Ohio surveys schools about what safety measures they have

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -

Thousands of Ohio schools have responded to a voluntary survey about school safety measures that will be used to help craft recommendations for state policymakers to consider next year.

Ohio Homeland Security spokesman Dustyn Fox says more than 6,500 school building and district administrators were notified about the survey, and about 4,000 responded by Wednesday's deadline.

They were asked whether their buildings have school resource officers and features such as visitor screening, reinforced exterior windows, panic alarms and card-swipe systems that limit entry. The survey also asked which security features administrators consider to be essential.

Their specific answers won't be shared publicly for security reasons, but a summary of the findings and recommendations is slated to be provided to the Legislature and the next governor's administration early next year.
