WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A report by state leaders has made several safety recommendations for Delaware schools following the deaths of two high school students.

Local news organizations report that the Special Committee on School Safety released its 42-page report on Tuesday after months of work and two public meetings.

The committee recommended that schools increase the number of resource officers to help students and halt school violence. It also suggested that the governor and state assembly give school personnel more tools to stop cyberbullying.

The report was released after 16-year-old Amy Joyner-Francis was killed at a Howard High School of Technology restroom in April and 15-year-old Brandon Wingo was gunned down near the school in May.

Sen. Robert Marshall says those deaths led him to sponsor the legislation creating the committee.
