Dothan Superintendent Tim Wilder said he's on board and looks forward to seeing what Speaker Hubbard's plan will bring. A proactive approach is the motto for Dothan schools when it comes to protecting their children and Wilder said he's glad to see the state getting involved.
The superintendent said he's seen firsthand things that have worked for the schools he oversees including cameras and other security devices. He thinks the plans used in Dothan could benefit other schools in Alabama.
People expected to speak at the January 9 meeting include State Superintendent Tommy Bice, representatives from the Department of Homeland Security, and members of law enforcement.
The meeting is open to the public. The location and time will be announced in the next few days.
