BG School Board talks school safety

BOWLING GREEN, OH (WTOL) - The Bowling Green Board of Education went into executive session Tuesday afternoon to address school safety.

Specifics of the meeting are private but officials said keeping students safe is a top priority to the district.

Parents feel there is room for improvement as well.

"I think it's a great idea! I think that we always need extra security especially now with everything going on in the world," said one parent.

Many parents also feel there are a number of approaches school districts could take when looking at how to keep students safe.

"I think security cameras possibly, extra officer possibly, I don't know if we want to go into the realm of arming teachers" said another parent.

Bowling Green is one of many districts looking for a way to amp up security to make sure students are safe

Sylvania, Oregon, and Springfield school districts have addressed the issue Sylvania plans to put a levy on the ballot that could lead to more security.

Toledo Public Schools has yet to make any changes as far as security goes.

Rather TPS leaders say they feel school safety starts with focusing on the mental health aspects of its students.
