Omaha school considers ID badge requirement

After the shooting that took place at Millard South High School in Omaha, NE on Jan 5 discussion has begun on how to improve the safety measures. Among the ideas that came up are mesh backpacks, cell phone use ban, requirement to stay on campus for lunch and carrying ID badge.

January shooting left 2 people dead. Robert Butler Jr. used his father’s handgun to fatally shoot assistant principal Vicki Kaspar and wound principal Curtis Case. Kaspar had suspended Butler, whose father is an Omaha police detective, that morning for driving on the football field. Butler fled the school and killed himself.

New safety measures will be reviewed by school officials within few weeks
