Utah Schools May Hold More Violence Drills

Fire drills aren’t the only types of drills Utah schools might soon be required to hold regularly. The state school board gave initial approval Friday to a rule that would require schools to alternate fire drills with either earthquake drills or violence lock down drills. Until now, alternating between fire drills and other types of drills has been optional for Utah schools. The board must vote on the change one more time next month for it to be final.
