APEX, N.C. (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory says he's got a proposal for making North Carolina's public schools safer.
The Republican governor is holding a news conference Tuesday morning at a Wake County middle school with some of his Cabinet secretaries to discuss his plans.
Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos (vah-sh) and Public Safety Secretary Kieran Shanahan are slated to join the governor to discuss a "safer schools initiative."
Several legislators have filed bills this year designed to address school safety by allowing certain teachers or volunteers to have access to guns in the event of an emergency.
Attorney General Roy Cooper urged McCrory earlier this year to re-examine his 2006 school safety study, which recommended more school resource officers and more threat training for educators.
