New schools built in West Virginia will be required to have shatter-proof glass and exterior door alarms.

The requirements are among several safety measures approved last week by the West Virginia School Building Authority.

Other changes require new schools to have separate visitor-entrance and waiting areas. Administrative offices must have a direct view of the parking lot.

Common areas, like the cafeteria, will be separated from the main entrance and office by doors that can be closed and mechanically locked from the office area.The policy also requires installation of video monitoring software.
