Corey Thornton - Guns in schools more often than most parents know!

Students were expelled or suspended from a Washington state public school 45 times last year for bringing a handgun to class, according…The guns were found in large and small districts, and rural and urban areas. The problem is nothing new for Washington state, according to the ”Weapons In School Report: 2010-11 School Year.”

Although state statistics on other weapons — from knives to shotguns — show a downward trend over the past decade, the numbers of handgun incidents have remained steady around 45 to 47 over the past 10 years.

School safety experts warn, however, that these school statistics, and recent incidents including the accidental shooting of a girl in a Bremerton classroom, give school officials just a glimpse of a bigger problem.

Corey Thornton -School Violence: Data & Statistics

The first step in preventing school violence is to understand the extent and nature of the problem. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of Justice gather and analyze data from a variety of sources to gain a more complete understanding of school violence.

While shocking and senseless shootings give the impression of dramatic increases in school-related violence, national surveys consistently find that school-associated homicides have stayed essentially stable or even decreased slightly over time.

According to the CDC’s School Associated Violent Death Study, less than 1 percent of all homicides among school-age children happen on school grounds or on the way to and from school. So the vast majority of students will never experience lethal violence at school.

The district has altered some routes to deal with RNC road closures and news channel it’s — spoke with parents about those changes. He also talked to the superintendent who offered some valuable advice.

Your son Davis islands — their children to the bus stop this morning they knew the ride to school. Please be a bit –

A lot of concern early then mostly because of the safety. Make sure our kids are safe around what’s your other school. And getting another card of the cars.

There are others that didn’t seem so horrible — they’ve been reassuring in the sense that there’s going to be a security person — whatever. But just for the sake of delays and everything they want the kids right.

Taking care of all the different options and that’s realities that could happen again very good job.

hide this morning that drop off went as planned. Other schools dealing with the longer — your bus rides include Gloria elementary and Wilson middle. Superintendent Mary Ellen — says. The district wanted to have the alternate routes in place before. Next week.

Today. So that next week when the RNC is into. Than those buses would be if I’m the same — having done it four days before this actually begins.

And — school officials are telling parents who live in and around downtown Tampa Bay is happier child. Take the bus to school even if he — she doesn’t normally take the bus the reason they’re gonna be traffic issues all over the city during the RNC. And if your child’s bus is late to school. Here she will not get a — if you’re taking your child to school and you’re late here — Will get a tardy. In — I triple south — news channel it.

Corey Thornton Partners with Chanel Torres - Bay News 9 Everyday Hero

ST. PETERSBURG —
Born with a condition that makes life more difficult than usual, Chanel Torres works daily to turn her personal tragedy into triumph for others.

She was born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

”Fetal Alcohol Syndrome happens when a mother drinks while pregnant. It doesn’t matter the age of the mother, you are still causing damage to the unborn child,” the 22-year-old explains.

She was born eight weeks premature and then had to battle for life.

She was given up for adoption at three weeks.

When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol it can pass across the placenta to the fetus and cause problems in speech, movement and social skills.

”I started researching this and one of my high school teachers asked me to give a five-minute presentation on it,” said Chanel.

She now runs a website and speaks often on the Syndrome.

Her message: It is 100% preventable.

She recently returned from Colorado where she won the national ”Yes! I can!” Award.

”I do it for the unborn. I will never do it for the awards. If I can save one child from dealing with what I deal with everyday, then I have done what I’m supposed to do.”
