West Virginia higher education officials are considering a proposed rule that addresses emergency procedures, communication and other campus safety issues.
It requires all schools to have a plan in place to deal with natural disasters, shooting incidents, infectious disease outbreaks and other campus emergencies.
The West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission is expected to vote on the rule during a special meeting on Friday. If approved, the rule would be submitted to the Secretary of State's Office for a 30-day public comment period.
