“As a parent, I am shocked, sad and afraid to learn that schools are not following requirements to keep our kids safe,” Bolger said in a statement. “As a legislator, I am disappointed to see that schools are not doing these required safety measures."
The investigation by MLive’s outlets across the state showed many schools are not complying with state law requiring six fire drills, two tornado drills and two Code Red drills each school year. MLive reporters surveyed 400 schools across 100 school districts in the state.
