"Any time that there's any type of event that occurs within the schools, especially within the United States and even more importantly when it's more local like in the Midwest area, we do get some additional interest where schools would contact us and say, 'Hey we're looking at this particular part of our program, '" said Randy Johnson, director of The Minnesota School Safety Center.

He also said the school district does not want to make immediate changes and take a "knee jerk reaction" to the February 14 shootings at a Florida high school in which police said a former student was able to enter the building with an automatic rifle and shoot and kill 17.

District-wide safety measures are implemented in accordance with State law which requires a safety plan for all schools.

A Bainbridge teen was arrested Wednesday after state police investigated a reported shooting-threat at Bainbridge-Guilford Central School District, authorities said Friday.

This week, the Great Neck school district sent an email to parents and staff from Assistant Superintendent John T. Powell, saying that officials are "evaluating all safety and security procedures now in place in our district and are in the process of adding a number of additional measures this week, to be implemented before school reopens on Monday morning". If something happens, the district will send out information as quickly as possible to the building crisis teams, safety personnel and the Pleasantville police and fire departments. School district officials work closely with the Montgomery Township Police Department, day in and day out. Many of these movements are memorial in nature, remembering the lives lost to school violence; others are calls to action, protests, and marches.

Each principal will decide what their school will do.

Emergency Operations Teams are in place at each school to tailor district team procedures to each respective school.

In #ArmMeWith movement, teachers ask to be armed -- but not with guns
And over the weekend at Mar-a-Lago, Trump heard from guests grappling with what to do in the wake of the tragedy. In recent days, Trump has been faced with the kinds of moments that no campaign can prepare a politician for.

Yet, Breedlove said he was unsure how any school district could completely stop anyone "wanting to do harm to anyone".

The Sioux Falls School District realizes there's an expectation from parents to keep kids safe and they don't take that job lightly.

"(District officials are) already planning further meetings with other law enforcement agencies as we move forward. "What are we missing?"

Meehan noted that schools have not been the only sites of random shootings. On Wednesday, troopers' presence during the day, including at dismissal, helped put many students and staff more at ease, the superintendent said, and with the school closed Thursday for a snow day, people had more time to settle down. Each school has a security vestibule that visitors must enter before entering the school's front office, Browning said. We provide some general considerations as you navigate this increasingly more familiar territory of school safety and individual rights. The district plans to install license-plate scanners at school buildings.

The Hauppauge district has scheduled another set of lockdown drills for the coming week.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says it's too early to comment as it's just beginning to review the governor's speech and his long-term goals. They practice the drills all year long, said Superintendent Dennis O'Hara.
