School Safety Plans Scrutinized


Thursday, February 28, 2013

The placid relationship between the Santa Barbara school board and district staff developed some ripples on Tuesday night when trustees—along with union President Layne Wheeler—pointed out that some school sites mailed in their safety plans, figuratively speaking. Some were obvious cut and paste jobs where school names were not even changed, oversights that take on added gravity in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre. Trustee Ed Heron did point out some of the better plans, especially La Cumbre’s.
