NBC 5 Investigates also obtained records from the Irving Independent School District. All Irving schools did one lockdown drill and one shelter-in-place drill during the 2011-12 school year, but there were five schools that skipped at least one fire drill.
In a statement to NBC 5 Investigates, Irving ISD states, “Beginning immediately, the district's internal auditor will now begin inspecting Fire Drill Reports to ensure compliance."
The superintendent has also ordered the security department to start keeping track of all drills each month to make sure they happen.
