The Longview school district will join a nationwide group that identifies students who could become violent and tracks them throughout their education — regardless of where they move.
Longview ISD officials said Wednesday the district will participate in the Student Safety National Alliance starting in the 2013-14 school year.
“What we are offering and introducing to you today is the Walmart for student safety and security,” said interim district Superintendent James Wilcox.
About 70 school administrators and campus police officers from 25 school districts attended a school safety conference at the district’s education safety center to learn about the alliance.
“We’re here because of what happened at Sandy Hook. If we weren’t having these catastrophic acts, we wouldn’t be here,” Korem told school officials Wednesday.
None of the desperate measures being implemented in the name of Sandy Hook would have had any impact on what happened there. The one thing which would have saved those kids was a security guard, and they absolutely refuse to discuss that.
