AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- A tragic event almost a year ago prompted some local schools to make some security changes that are visible when you enter.
One local school system has not made any upgrades just yet, but it says it is more vigilant than a year ago.
George Earhart, the Augusta County Schools Assistant Superintendent, said they reviewed their safety and crisis plan, but did not do any construction.
Right now, their schools don't have vestibules that are next to the main office or a buzzer system to get into the door.
There is a sign that asks visitors to check in the office.
"Anytime that you are retrofitting a building, It takes a considerable amount of money. But we also don't want to spend it without knowing how beneficial it is. Safety is certainly our foremost," said Earhart.
A safety committee will walk through each building next month and it will provide recommendations if any changes are needed.
