Calif. school safety plans under scrutiny

SACRAMENTO, CA - Every July, schools are supposed to turn in their safety plan to the state ... how they evacuate students, whether they have locked doors while classes are in session, which people they let in, are security cameras in place? Are people trained to react?

One state senator is upset that the last numbers he could find indicate that more than half - 53 percent of schools - did not comply in 2009.

"And because we don't keep good track of this data, we don't know in the last two years whether the situation has gotten worse or better," said Sen. Ted Lieu, D-Torrance.

In light of the Connecticut shooting, the state has asked all California schools to review their safety plan.

After Columbine, lawmakers allocated roughly $90 million a year for security improvements, but as the recession wore on and squeezed the state budget, school finance consultants say leaders allowed flexibility in how that money is spent.
