With all the reports of school shootings, safety and prevention has been on the minds of local administrators. Those tragic events spurred the Mansfield School Board to a discussion at Monday nights meeting. One idea under consideration is the hiring of a school security officer.
The board has been studying protocols put in place by area districts. At this time the board took no official action but plan to continue looking for ways to improve school safety. “With all the shootings like Santa Fe High School in Texas, we are needing to take some action,” Mansfield Superintendent Robert Ross said.
