school safety

Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and school leaders across the state want to bolster the number of mental health professionals as part of a plan to improve student safety.

This week, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval sat down with a majority of the state's school superintendents to discuss ways to improve student safety. When he announced the meeting, Sandoval said he hopes the discussion will lead to recommendations that could be brought to lawmakers next year.

Correction: When this story originally aired, it incorrectly stated that the student who was recently shot by a campus police officer at Hug High was killed. The version below has been corrected.

Students at Hug High School in Reno are asking city leaders for help in making positive changes in their community. They say seemingly small improvements, like adding more street lighting and placing recycling bins at bus stops, will increase safety and pride in and around the school.
