School Safety

May 24: School Safety: Implementing 7026

On February 14, 2018, a mass shooting occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Seventeen people were killed and seventeen more were wounded, making it one of the world’s deadliest massacres, surpassing the Columbine High School massacre. In the days following, the Florida Legislature debated and passed CS/SB 7026 in response. The bill, while well-intended, was rushed through the process in less than three weeks and has been difficult to implement at the local level. here are varying interpretations of what the bill DOES or DOES NOT require of cities and counties as it relates to providing school resource or safe-school officers, how the appropriated funds can be used, and what they do or do not cover. Tune in to this informative webinar to hear FLC Lobbyists, Amber Hughes and Casey Cook, and FAC Lobbyists, Davin Suggs and Robert Brown, discuss school safety and things to consider when implementing CS/SB 7026.

Join us to get the facts before forging into the next chapter of public leadership.
