Strange offers awards for Ala. safe schools ideas

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) —
Attorney General Luther Strange is re instituting a program to encourage
schools to come up with new ways and technology to curb school violence.

The
attorney general has sent a letter to education officials and
principals inviting them to make nominations for what he calls the 2013
Awards of Excellence.

He says determining ways to reduce school
violence is a priority for his office. His office has offered the awards
before, but Strange says this time the emphasis will be on the use of
technology to ensure school are safe. Strange discussed the program
during an appearance at a Montgomery civic club Monday.

Strange
says there has never been a more important time to ensure that schools
are safe referring to a recent deadly shooting at a Connecticut
elementary school.
