New Schools Will Have to Implement Several Safety Measures

Since the shootings last December at Sandy Hook Elementary school, schools have been reevaluating security. West Virginia is no exception. New schools built in the state now will be required to have shatter-proof glass and exterior door alarms. The West Virginia School Building Authority gave those and several other security measures the green light. Schools will also have to have a separate visitor entrance and waiting areas, and administrative offices must have a direct line of sight to a school's parking lot. And the door alarms will sound when a door is ajar.
