Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine is ready to announce the recommendations of a committee formed to evaluate school safety in the wake of last year's school shootings in Connecticut and in Chardon in northeast Ohio.

The task force includes educators and police and fire officials ordered to review ways to improve school safety plans.

The plans are schools' responses to a variety of emergencies, from active shooters to fires, accidents, severe weather or medical emergencies.

DeWine announced the task force in December following the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut that killed 20 first graders and six adults.

The task force recommendations coming out Friday also follow last year's shooting at Chardon High School in which a teen gunman killed three students in a cafeteria.
