CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The West Virginia Board of Education is stressing the need for a full review of school safety around the state.
 
The board said Friday that it has asked West Virginia Department of Education staff to reach out to national experts on school safety issues.
 
Board president Wade Linger says that while the state has conducted school safety reviews in the past, he believes further input will ensure the state doesn't "have a blind spot."
 
Over the past few years, West Virginia has allocated $30 million to school districts for school safety upgrades. As a part of the grants, districts also had to develop school access safety plans and appoint a school safety director.
 
School-specific crisis response plans also required by the coming school year under a 2011 state law.
