School safety measures increase since Columbine Shooting | Top Stories | #schoolsaftey

WAUSAU, Wis.(WAOW)– Saturday marks 25 years since the Columbine High School Shooting, that took the lives of 12 students and one teacher. 

Since then schools across the country have heightened their school safety measures including the Wausau School District. By implementing School Resource Officers (SRO) like Andrew Kutchenriter. 

Kutchenriter is currently in his first year as a resource officer at John Muir Middle School. He states that the school is offering programs like the Speak Up, Speak Out program through the Office of School Safety.

Attorney General Josh Kaul says the state has been working to offer a plethora of training through the Office of School Safety. 

“We’re doing 11 pieces of training on behavioral threat assessment and management specifically, and what that is, it’s a process that uses evidence-based solutions, said Kaul. To help provide a framework for schools as they are considering school safety issues to determine how to respond,”

To ensure the safety of people within the community Kutchenriter encourages everyone to say something if they see something. 

“Whether that’s a substantial change in behavior, whether someone is being constantly bullied, what have you,” said Kutchenriter.
