OKC schools consider elementary school saferoom
OKLAHOMA CITY — The state’s largest school district is now considering a proposal to build a saferoom in one elementary school.
Safety in Oklahoma schools has become an increasingly important issue for Oklahoma parents after seven school children died at Plaza Towers Elementary School in the May 20 Moore tornado.
News Channel 4′s Ali Meyer continues to report on the progress being made in Oklahoma schools.
Earlier this week, the Oklahoma City Public Schools school board discussed a measure that would allocate about $3 million to build a saferoom in one of the district’s largest elementary schools.
If the measure passes, it would be the first saferoom to be built-in the district in almost 10 years.
This special report airs Thursday night at 10 p.m. on News Channel 4.
