On Monday night, members of the St. Charles County Council heard the final recommendations from a task force that focused on how school safety can be improved.

Assembled in the wake of last year’s school shooting in Connecticut, the group included members of law enforcement, school administration and mental health services.  

Task force member and County Councilman Terry Hollander said in part the report is meant to be a resource for educators.
