School Board Member Dr. Dorothy Bendross-Mindingall (D-2) sponsored H-17 Providing a Safe Learning Environment for Students, Teachers, and Staff, at the April 25th School Board Meeting.

The item adopts policy position to not arm any additional school personnel other than school resource officers (SRO’S) and school police. Pursuant to the Coach Feis guardian program, the item requests that the funds be used to train and hire additional SRO’s and school police.
