A new Kansas law is scaling back the requirements for safety drills in public and private schools.

The move comes a year after the Kansas Legislature added crisis drills to prepare students for active shooters and other threats.

Kansas schools were required to hold 16 fire, tornado and crisis drills this year. That’s about one every two weeks.
