New SC law requires active shooter drills in schools


(WSPA) — South Carolina students will participate in active shooter drills starting in fall. 

Last week, lawmakers passed a cumulative school safety bill.

The bill requires the S.C. Department of Education to develop a school safety plan that includes fire and earthquake drills, and now active shooter drills.

State education officials are working with law enforcement on the plan, which is expected to be complete by Aug. 1.
