In Salem, Superintendent Stephen Russell said the shooting served as a wake-up call for his district and they are working on developing lockdown or “intruder in the building” procedures.
Beverly Mayor Bill Scanlon, who serves on the School Committee, said there have been significant discussions with school administrators and the committee in regards to security at the schools. All safety procedures have been reviewed, he said.
“For the most part, we believe our security measures are appropriate,” he said.
Arthur Skarmeas, chairman of the Danvers School Committee, said school administrators met with police shortly after the tragedy to review policy. The School Department takes security very seriously, he said.
A subcommittee of School Committee members have also scheduled a meeting for later this month.
“We are going to review the policy and see if there is anything we can tighten up and make sure current policy is being followed as well as possible,” he said.
