Knife Incidents Lead To Task Force

Item: Task force to target student conduct: Knife incidents accelerate plans to tighten policies/Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Though plans for tackling these issues have been in the works since earlier this year, Bauman decided to step up the timeline for action based on parent input and recent violations of school rules. An example is the two recent events with knives at schools. One was aggressive, while Wednesday's incident at Lakes Middle School was horseplay that led to an accidental injury. The fact remains that knives are still finding their way into the schools.

Question: Would you be nervous sending your child to a Coeur d'Alene middle school, where two incidents involving knives have taken place recently?
