Last weekend, experts with Safe Schools 101 were in Tulsa to check school buildings and see how safe they are during severe weather.
The group of architects and engineers inspected two schools in within Tulsa Public Schools, Eliot Elementary and Webster High School.
One crew spent Saturday evaluating the halls of Eliot, while another crew did the same at Webster as part of the state-wide effort to make Oklahoma schools safer.
These efforts began after seven children died in Moore when a tornado hit their school last year.
So far, crews have evaluated 31 school buildings in five counties, mostly near Oklahoma City. Eliot and Webster are the first schools inspected inTulsa.
Engineers learned a lot from what they saw in the schools after the Moore tornado and are using that very knowledge to improve other schools. Officials with Safe Schools 101 could make recommendations to school districts to change where students take shelters or to actual changes to the building.
Safe Schools 101 would like to check every school district in Oklahoma, but the districts have to reach out first.
Vinita Public Schools is the only other district in Green Country to make the request.
