FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Legislative leaders say school security will likely be on the agenda again during next year’s session in North Dakota.
House Majority Leader Al Carlson says it’s unfortunate that proposals to add more security to schools failed in the past two sessions. He says other states are taking action. Carlson says larger districts, such as Fargo, have done a good job in improving security in school buildings, but smaller districts don’t have the money to make those improvements.
KFGO reports state Superintendent Kirsten Baesler says she’s been in talks with the Highway Patrol about offering office space in rural district schools where troopers could do their routine paperwork and interact with students and staff.
