A safe learning environment for every student and staff member is a school board’s highest priority. While in recent days we have seen a number of proposals to keep schools safe, the public is best served when local boards of education, operating within the boundaries of their legal authority, choose what approaches are best for their district. One thing is clear, however: both state and federal lawmakers should earmark additional resources toward maintaining school safety in our local communities.
