Posted on: August 28, 2019

With visits to Rapid Run Middle School and J.F. Dulles Elementary, Ohio Homeland Security officials completed security reviews at all OHLSD schools.

Although the State of Ohio does not require the reviews -- which are called vulnerability assessments -- OHLSD Director of Safety and Security Bart West requested the Department of Homeland Security visits. Included in the assessments are entrance security, camera placement, chemical storage, secured access and utility shut-offs. The agency, which has already reviewed the district's safety plans, will issue a report to the district.
