LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Parents are pressing the Lincoln school board to do more to keep their children safe.

Several people told the board at Tuesday night’s meeting that they wanted more shooter drills and more information about the district safety protocols.

Others criticized security at entrances to many schools, saying they were able to walk in freely.

Parent Korey Reiman told the board that, “When we hear statements like, ‘It’s as safe as schools can be,’ we know it can be better.”

District Superintendent Steve Joel acknowledged to the parents that the district has a lot to address and he thanked them for their input.
