Following our story that exposed 14 of the 21 schools in DD2 either skipped, or could not account for at least one of the required monthly fire drills in the 2012-2013 school year, the district changed the reporting process. In September the district started requiring principals to email those reports to the district instead of sending them by fax.

Now, elementary schools are posting all of their fire drill reports on their individual website.

"Once Mr. Franko reported this, we met together as a focus group and the principals were the ones who came up with this idea, so we were very excited about that", said Dr. Glenn Huggins, Executive Director of Elementary Schools for DD2.

Huggins suspects this could be a district-wide effort if the feedback from parents is positive.
