      School evacuation reveals crisis kinks

      Students at Merry Acres Middle react during a tornado drill.

      Although the evacuation at Albany High School Wednesday morning was executed as planned, school leaders are trying to fine tune their crisis protocol.

      Last week during a crisis training course, teachers revealed they weren't confident with executing their crisis plan.

      After today's evacuation, officials say the school system needs a better way to relocate and reunite students with their parents.

      That's something that we will be working on in the near future to make sure that we fine tune all those little problems and that's the way that we're going to smooth out the kinks or work out the problems, said Chief Troy Conley, DCSS Police Department.

      Chief Conley hopes to have training courses this year.
