According to Superintendent Danny Tanoos, Vigo County schools follow a nation-wide safety model.
The administration has cross-county radios to keep in constant contact, security guards police the schools, and the high schools have a kiosk for visitors to sign in and their names are run through national databases.
Tanoos says school officials react to every rumor, and communication is key.
"You continue to plan but in all honesty, you can plan all you want but the best source for us to find out information on instances like this are students and staff members and community people who hear about these things. As soon as they hear something, they need to report it to us. As soon as they report it to us, we act," said Tanoos.
School leaders are also alerted any time there's news of school violence anywhere in the country. Today, Tanoos and the security team monitored the situation in Ohio to be ready at a moment's notice.
