CLEVELAND - A review of state records reveals 34 northeast Ohio schools have failed to comply with state law requiring floor plans to be filed with police responding to potential school shooting incidents.

Thurgood Marshall High School, MC2 Stem High School, Campus International are among those listed as failing to submit plans.

A spokesperson for the Cleveland Metropolitan School System says it has filed floor plans for MC2 Stem High School despite the school appearing on the list provided by the Attorney General's Office.

In addition, five schools in the Cleveland Catholic Diocese are also listed as failing to comply.

Those schools include St. Ignatius of Antioch Elementary  School, St. Joseph Academy, St. Agatha-St. Aloysius, St. Francis and St. Columbkille.
