Kentucky schools have stepped up their training for emergencies in the year since 26 people were shot to death at a Connecticut elementary school.
Kentucky passed new laws for public schools requiring revisions of emergency management plans, consultations with first responders and specific time frames for student drills.
Lexington Catholic High School Principal Sally Stevens says awareness is heightened any time there's a school shooting, but she says the Connecticut school shooting had a particular impact.
Lexington Catholic staff plan to take training next month, and there's a new set of main entrance doors locked all day, forcing visitors to buzz in.
