Many school districts across Central Illinois have been reviewing their security policies after the Parkland, Florida school shooting and local threats. Shelbyville Schools is no different.
Shelbyville School District Superintendent Denise Bense says they have been fortunate to not have any serious threat to the district. But, a simple reference in another school’s threat led Shelbyville officials to make sure it wasn’t for their schools.
Bense says they treat every threat very seriously because they don’t take any chances with student safety.
Bense appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios.
