School safety legislation
United States Senators Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) are introducing legislation that will help Tennessee – and states across the country – use “every federal dollar available to them to keep their schools safe from violence and have the mental health services they need.” Said Alexander, “Under this bill, the federal government can help in the following four ways: One, allow schools to use Title II funding under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act to hire more counselors. Two, make it clear that schools can use federal funding they are already receiving through Title II and Title IV under the Every Student Succeeds Act to improve the professional development of school counselors, and to improve the school safety infrastructure, including installing new alarm systems, improving entrances and exits of school, installing security cameras, and other infrastructure upgrades. Three, our bill renews and updates the law to expand a successful program that helped train education personnel and ensure children have the services they need after a violent incident. And fourth, create an interagency task force to make recommendations—not mandates, recommendations—on best practices, policies, and procedures to improve schools safety and school safety infrastructure.”
