After the horrific mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Texas that killed 21 people, the Los Angeles Unified School District announced today that they are expanding the on-campus safety measures by changing communications protocols and investing in new technology to enhance safety.
The new safety protocol includes conducting access assessments to ensure reduced points of entry at campuses. The LAUSD is also looking into mobile apps with GPS to enable first responders so they have effective access to critical incidents as well as sharing maps of the school to local first responders so they can be quick in their response. The district also wants to provide those with enhanced mental health support, which will focus on prevention and early identification.
