School security remains on the front burner in Hillsborough County, where the school board was scheduled to meet Tuesday to discuss ways to make campuses safer.
Like most school districts, Hillsborough has been reviewing its security measures after a mass shooting of children at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school shook the nation.
In January, the school board voted down Superintendent MaryEllen Elia's proposal to put an armed, trained officer in every county elementary school. But board members did vote to hire Michael Dorn, a national school safety expert, to review the district's safety protocols.
In concert, police and school security staff began to review school entrances to determine how secure they are.
Tuesday's workshop was slated to begin at 1 p.m. and last about three hours.
