FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - As the sirens sounded teachers in schools across the Hoosier state were corralling kids to get them to a safe location.

Fort Wayne Community Schools assessed Tuesday’s performance and a district spokesperson says there is room for improvement.

FWCS Spokeswoman Krista Stockman says, “Some schools found is that their weather radios were not working, some schools even though there were tornado sirens going off, some schools didn't hear them for what ever reason, depending where you are in the city, you may or may not have been in a good location, here those especially if you are inside a school building.”

Stockman continued to say they contacted all the schools in the district Wednesday to make sure principals familiarized themselves with the proper procedures.
