The commission acknowledges that this document isn't a finished product. Members call upon every school, public and private, to continuously evaluate its own unique needs and make appropriate upgrades to emergency plans, buildings and grounds. Sandy Hook was another wake-up call and we know that the bar of public expectations has been raised.
All of us must keep asking this question: How safe are our schools? Our children deserve an answer.
Webb, a former state commissioner of public safety and former president of the University of Central Oklahoma, is a member of the school safety commission.
