As students from kindergarten to college prepare to head back to school, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency and local emergency management agencies across the state are reminding educators about school safety.  The Illinois Terrorism Task Force School Safety Working Group recently gave 13 recommendations to Governor Bruce Rauner to help make Illinois schools safer according to Chairman of the Taskforce Mike Chamness...
 

 

 
The recommendations were compiled over a 30-45 day period and are available online for the public.
 

 

 
Chamness says while there is no single answer to achieving school safety the Taskforce hopes to expand on these recommendations so schools can exercise them to make a safe learning environment.
