SE Texas Schools Plan for Active Shooter Situations

(TNS) - Less than a week after a 19-year-old shot and killed 17 of his classmates at a Florida high school, Silsbee ISD teachers watched a video of a mock school shooting play out on a screen in their auditorium.

The district decided last week to spend part of Monday's staff workday on a two-hour active shooter training session, discussing their emergency plans and watching training videos.

"You can never fully prepare for something like this," Superintendent Richard Bain said. "In light of the stuff that's happened here recently in our nation, I think everybody is a little more sensitive and we felt like it was a good idea."
