W. Perry, PA: Principal "has seen an increase in students with severe behavioral/emotional issues"

Mar 24, 2018, Penn Live: Parents press West Perry school board for changes http://www.pennlive.com/perry-county-times/index.ssf/2018/03/parents_press_west_perry_schoo.html West Perry's March 12 meeting became a forum for residents to air their grievances at district administrators. The precipitating event was the district's slow response to an incident last year in which a student composed a "kill list" bearing the names of 30 students and adults, which was discovered on a school computer. … Superintendent Michael O'Brien said he is taking the matter of security very seriously. The district has asked Pennsylvania State Police to conduct drills to prepare staff and students should an incident occur. … New Bloomfield Principal Lucas Clouse received high praise from several and was recommended to conduct incident management training sessions for other administrators. Clouse said over his 11 years he has seen an increase in the number students with severe behavioral and emotional issues.
