San Diego Unified responds to Texas HS shooting

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego Unified officials Friday addressed safety concerns following a horrific school shooting in Texas. District superintendent Paul Gothold said the district will review school safety plans in light of Texas' school shooting.
"You can't educate students without them being safe; it's a responsibility San Diego County school leaders and employees take very seriously. Every San Diego County school has a safety plan and procedures that contribute to maintaining a safe learning environment for our students. In the wake of this incident, school personnel will be reviewing those plans and continuing to implement best practices in maintaining the safety and security of our schools."
Gothold said a safety summit held in April allowed district officials to work with law enforcement agencies in order to build safer policies, including systems to prevent violent incidents. This year, SDUSD approved $15 million in safety upgrades for things like security cameras, fencing, locks and gates, and notification systems. A date was not given as to when the improvements would be issued.
