Source: Fox News

“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed a bill aimed at improving school safety in Florida following the Uvalde, Texas school shooting that left 21 people dead. The bill, known as HB 1421, takes several steps to prevent school shootings in the future including requiring school safety officers to make complete crisis intervention training, allowing school safety officers to make arrests on charter school property and requiring school districts annually certify that 80% of school personnel have received youth mental health awareness training. … The bill also extends the sunset of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission, enacted by Florida Republicans following a 2018 school shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 people dead.” (06/07/22)
