SPRING MILLS, WV (AP) — 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 by the West Virginia School Building Authority.

Media outlets report that the authority voted to revise its quality and performance manual on Monday during a meeting at Spring Mills Primary School.

Other changes require new schools to have separate visitor entrance and waiting areas. Administrative offices must have a direct line of sight to a school's parking lot.

The door alarms will sound when a door is ajar. The goal is to discourage staff and students from propping a door open with wedges or other items.
