How Georgia House legislators want to improve school safety
DCN Generic school bus
The Georgia House of Representatives is calling for the creation of a statewide threat management team to coordinate school safety and security resources through the executive branch, or governor’s office. The management team would be designed to coordinate with local school districts, law enforcement agencies and mental health providers to work to prevent and respond to violence on public school campuses. It is one of many recommendations made earlier this month by a House study committee on school security, and follows recommendations made previously by a federal panel and by a similar Senate committee in November.
