Teachers and staff at Fayetteville Public Schools attended a crisis training session Monday (June 16) to learn how to improve the district’s response to emergencies.
After a high number of bomb threats were reported throughout the area over the past school year, the district addressed their current plans in hopes of having a uniform policy ready for the future.
During the training session, school staff members discussed how to better manage emergency situations, like bomb threats.
Two campus emergency specialists from Texas were at the meeting providing suggestions for the Fayetteville faculty.
Fayetteville principal Ashely McLarty, who recently apologized to parents after waiting two to three hours after getting word about a bomb threat before reporting it to the superintendent and police, was in attendance at the training session.
The district does crisis training three or four times a year.
