After the massacre of 20 students in a Connecticut elementary school earlier this month, school safety became a hot topic for both school officials and parents.

Current State Superintendent Dr. James Phares said schools across the Mountain State will continue to rely on the crisis response plans in place.
He did say that while the schools have gotten better at internal crisis prevention in the past 2 or 3 years, they're still not great at identifying external threats. He believes more discussions need to take place on what to do to solve that problem. Some of the topics in these discussions would need to include whether or not to put Prevention Resource Officers in all schools.

Statewide, different counties are doing their own assessments on school safety.
