Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell has proposed several bills on school safety in this year's General Assembly.
A few of the bills passed the Senate on Monday.
One of the school safety bills would require all public schools to have at least two lock down drills each year.
Rockingham County Schools Superintendent Carol Fenn says her schools already do that.
The one bill she'd really like to see pass is one that would give more money to local schools to update security.
Fenn says Rockingham County Schools are already doing that to keep kids safe, but she says that extra money would really help.
"We're revamping and looking at secured vestibules, security cameras, and also staffing, having school resource officers in all of our schools would certainly be an asset in Rockingham," said Fenn.
Fenn says they now have five resource officers for 25 schools, so with state funding, she says they could add more officers at more schools.
