Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam has approved the recommendations of a school safety panel, including a security-risk assessment of all Tennessee public school facilities. Haslam announced the approval today of the recommendations from the panel he appointed. Two other immediate priorities identified by the panel included an increase in available resources to help secure school resource officers, and providing a statewide technology application for the anonymous reporting of security threats. Haslam said in a statement the assessment of every public elementary and secondary school to identify risks should begin immediately, adding the assessments should be finished before students return to school in the fall. The statement says each school’s emergency operations plan must identify and update specific facility risks on an annual basis.
