School leaders, students stress need for mental health care

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming education officials and students say increased access to health care for students is needed to keep schools safe.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports Michael Harris with the Fremont County School District told members of the Federal Commission on School Safety on Tuesday that several of his students share similar characteristics with man accused in the Florida high school shooting earlier this year.

He thinks it’s likely that every Wyoming school district has students who like the shooter are socially unengaged, struggling academically, behaviorally challenging and may be suffering from mental illness.

President Donald Trump formed the commission following the shooting.

Others say they would like to see improved safety and security in schools, including more school resource officers.
