Okla. school security panel plans recommendations

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A panel of law enforcement and security experts is finalizing its recommendations for improving security at Oklahoma's public schools.

The Oklahoma Commission on School Security meets Wednesday as panelists discuss which of 39 draft proposals they will include in a list of final recommendations for legislative action. The commission will vote on its final legislative recommendations on March 5.

The 22-member task force is headed by Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb. It was formed after a deadly shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., killed 20 children and six school employees.

Draft proposals include more mental health treatment for troubled students, mandatory training for school staffs on bullying and emergency preparedness, and the creation of a school security institute that would coordinate and standardize school security procedures statewide.
