TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Leon County Schools superintendent Rocky Hanna laid out the district's new proposed safety plan at Tuesday's school board meeting.

Hanna hopes that the new plan will help the county "double down" on safety procedures.

The plan does not support arming teachers in schools and, instead, focuses on better training faculty and students on what to do if a school shooting occurs. It also suggests hiring more people to have eyes on the campus at all times.

The plan was made as part of a joint effort by the Leon County School Board and the Leon County Sheriff's Office, but Hanna pointed out that their plan won't work without help from legislators.

The legislative session wraps up next week, and Hanna says he is hopeful they will make a decision on funding by then.
