CS/SB 7030 (2019) — School Safety and Security (Guardian Program) into the Senate Appropriations Committee

School Safety and Security: Requiring a sheriff to establish a school guardian program under a certain condition; requiring school districts to promote a mobile suspicious activity reporting tool through specified mediums; requiring the Commissioner of Education to review recommendations from the School Hardening and Harm Mitigation Workgroup; revising the duties of the commissioner to include oversight of compliance with the safety and security requirements of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act by specified persons and entities, etc.

If you are a bit confused by all this, so am I and at least we agree on something. This is the same bill with a Committee Substitute of the original Senate Bill that does not alter the part of removing the ban on volunteer teachers to be part of the Guardian Program. It is not a perfect bill in that sense, but still a 100 times better than we have now.

Send them a couple of polite notes telling them you approve this bill. They were scheduled to do so today, but the meeting was cancelled. No idea for when now, but don’t waste time.

And again, thanks everybody who is doing this bit of effort.

  1. Why is the bill flawed? If it removes the ban on teacher participation and requires the Sheriff to provide training, what is missing?
