Video prepares Ohio districts for school shootings

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Attorney General’s Office is sending a training video to every school district in the state about how to prepare and respond to a school shooting situation.

The office said the video — called “School Shootings: How to be Aware, Prepare, and be a First Responder in a Crisis” was being mailed to districts beginning Friday.

The video is an extension of the in-person training at the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy that began in January and has attracted more than 4,200 educators and others.

Participants were instructed to be aggressive about reporting troubling student behavior, practicing for an active shooter situation and making sure school staff and law enforcement have a similar understanding about how a response would work.
