COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Collier County school officials discussed school security at their first meeting of the year.
Superintendent Kamela Patton says the safety of students and faculty are their number one priority. She stressed the schools within her district are being vigilant and working closely with the Collier County Sheriff's Office.
"We're fortunate again because we've been very progressive with safety and security for 35 years. We have all our schools covered by law enforcement officers, that's why many people are scrambling to have that happen."
The district is also creating additional enhancements to help teach and train school employees. This week, they will release a co-authored video with the sheriff's office and school staff. It will have one message for all employees to follow. They will also use that video as a training tool for new employees.
