The Ames Community School District is changing the way it prepares for the possibility of an active shooter situation in one of it's buildings. Superintendent Tim Taylor says after last week's shooting in Florida, Ames administrators have come to the realziation that it's time for training to involve students. He says the school district is working with the Ames Police Department on the best ways to conduct active-shooter drills with students. Taylor says parents who don't want their children to part of the active-shooter training will be able to opt out. While he'd like to see the training happen as soon as possible, there's no specific timeline as yet.
