YAKIMA, Wash. -- In light of the Connecticut shooting security remains a hot subject for schools here in the Valley.

KIMA learned superintendents of Yakima Valley school districts will meet with police representatives this week to discuss security.

A lieutenant with the sheriff's office says he already met with several districts.

One idea would arm some educators, but nothing has been decided.

People are divided on the issue.

"I don't think that firearms in schools are a good idea, but there are several non-lethal forms of self defense," said Brodie Knox who lives in Yakima County.

Officers say each district must identify ways to improve security. They will also explore ways to strengthen partnerships.
