In the story “Teachers learn about new safety procedures at Boyle school,” an example given concerning a school shooting that killed 11 people was incorrect. Dan Orman, with the Kentucky Center for School Safety was talking about an actual incident that occurred in 1994 when an armed student took a teacher and class hostage.The assistant principal intervened and traded himself for the students and teacher. Then he got the gun from the student. Orman said he asked the Boyle County staff to imagine what might have happened if a student had confronted the shooter by throwing a can or rock — there might have been 11 people killed in that classroom.
