Worthington school district setting example in fight against terror
Channel 10 News had the story last night... Central Ohio School Setting Example in Fight Against Terror and that central Ohio school district is the Worthington City School District. Channel 10 News has an article and video in the link that tell the story of how Worthington schools worked with the Department of Homeland Security to become the leaders in preparation for a terrorist act.
" The U.S. Department of Homeland Security calls having improvised explosive devices or bombs the No. 1 terrorist act. In the past, schools were less prepared for handling those types of events."
According to the Channel 10 News article and video the work done by Worthington Schools along with the Department of Homeland Security will serve to guide other Ohio communities in making their school buildings safer for children.
The Worthington City School District in northern Franklin County serves the City of Worthington, the Village of Riverlea and a portion of the City of Columbus as well as homes in unincorporated areas (townships.) The school district boundaries were in place before much of northern Franklin County was developed or annexed into cities. Worthington was established in 1803.
It looks as if the school pictured in the Channel 10 News video is Kilbourne Middle School. The photos here are of Kilbourne Middle School, on E. Dublin Granville Rd. last November.
