Superintendent Shane Barnette Has A Plan For School Safety

On Monday, Hanceville Principal Jimmy Collins invited Cullman County Schools Superintendent Shane Barnette, Hanceville Mayor Kenneth Nail, Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry, Hanceville Chief of Police Bob Long and Hanceville Fire Chief Rodger Green to Hanceville High School.

Flanked by the command staff, investigators and many patrol officers from the Hanceville Police Department, this group of men gathered in the library of Hanceville High School.

The goal: To get real, get serious and get proactive about school intruders and anyone actively threatening Hanceville High.

The meeting included a myriad of topics related to the micro-specifics of student/teacher safety and global, philosophical discussions on how to handle the problem and perceived threats across a broad spectrum.

Afterward, Principal Collins led the group on a room by room tour of each room inside Hanceville, High, Middle and Elementary schools. The idea was to allow the 15 or so Hanceville police officers to get a visual feel of the layout and terrain of the interior and exterior of the school campus.

In this interview following the gathering, Cullman County Schools Superintendent Shane Barnette discussed his comprehensive plan to address the potential for active shooters, credible threats and non-credible chatter that leads to classroom disruptions.

Superintendent Barnette plans to conduct a similar School Safety Meetings across all Cullman County School campuses shortly as well as conduct a larger School Safety Summitt involving ALL stakeholders in the county associated with ensuring public safety AND responding to violent incidents in the schools:
