Columbine High School
April 21, 2011 by USA Post
Columbine High School, Wednesday marked the 12th anniversary of the deadly attack on Columbine High School. That, coupled with recent threats at local schools, the authorities say they will never be too careful.
“Once an incident has occurred that endangers lives can not undo that,” says Bergstrom.
But not only has an anniversary to remind staff of the school violence often occurs.
In recent months, a high school student Byron is accused of a crime after being threatened with a gun to school.
A few weeks later, Alden-Conger School received threatening messages written on bathroom walls on the end of the world, referring to the anniversary of Red Lake shooting.
In the study of the Rochester Academy, school officials learned someone ordered a hit to a student in school.
These incidents highlight how school violence is common, and the story gets too close to repeating itself.
“We are working actively to ensure the safety of our students and working in the building,” says Kirsten Lindblom, a student support staff at Austin High School.
With staff members stationed at each entrance and a total of 114 cameras throughout the building.
“We have cameras in hallways, stairwells, common areas, we have monitors in our offices to see and record what we see on these cameras,” says Jason Senne, deputy director of the Austin secondary.
Another advantage of this school, as its establishment. Because the building is rectangular in shape, school officials have views straight down several corridors of a place.
And a liaison officer to walk the halls every day.
“He is constantly working with them (students), speaking with them, developing relationships with them and is a connection with the Centre for Law Enforcement as well,” says Senne.
But the most important weapon that can be used to combat school violence is communication.
“Part of the safety of our building is derived from the relationships that our officers are able to build with our students,” said Senne, “we want them to feel comfortable to come talk with us.”
“I tell my parents all the time from 7:55 am to 3 pm children are my children and I want my kids safe,” says Bergstrom.
Austin School District also has a safety committee, which meets once a month.
The committee is considering the addition of key systems, card access in all schools in the district one in the agenda of next week’s training in crisis situations.
