BENTONVILLE, AR (KAIT/KNWA) - The Arkansas School Safety Commission made a stop in Bentonville on Tuesday to help teachers and administrators take steps to keep their schools safe, according to Fayetteville NBC affiliate KNWA.

The commission was created by Governor Hutchinson after the school shooting in Parkland, FL.

His goal was to use leaders in the community to help administrators and school officials increase safety for students.

"School security is not something that I think administration, administrators have all the answers for anymore. It truly takes parents, students, and law enforcement and administration to come together to make sure we take care of each other," said Leslee Wright, communications director for the Bentonville School District.

Wright added that the commission is planning on making several stops around the Natural State.
