Teachers, School Administrators Meeting Tonight on School Safety

advertisement

It’s summer, but school is still in session for teachers and other administrators across our state.

Many will meet at New Britain High School Thursday evening to discuss school security.

Education professionals will speak to the School Safety Infrastructure Council, a panel that was created after the Newtown tragedy to improve security in our schools. The panel is considering installing bullet-proof glass, electronic locks and cameras on school grounds to enhance security.

The panel has until Jan. 1 to submit its new safety standards to the state.

The enhanced security measures are covered by a $15 million grant under the state’s gun control law, which was passed earlier this year.
