Bipartisan Study on School Safety Requested

The study requested by Rep. Jacob Rosecrants, D-Norman, and Rep. Daniel Pae, D-Lawton, would review school security practices and examine how schools protect students. “We want to take a holistic approach,” Pae said. “Our hope with this study is to collect answers, ideas, and best practices so that we can share that with our colleagues and hopefully craft smart, data-driven solutions to problems districts face when it comes to protecting students.” After a string of mass shootings, including the tragic elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, the driver of the study is bipartisanship. “One of the biggest roadblocks to progress is partisan fighting,” Rosecrants said. “This is an issue that must rise above that divisiveness. Teachers across the state are teaching their students to work together. To protect those students and teachers, we must do the same.” Interim studies are approved by the Speaker of the House. Decisions on which studies are approved are expected no later than July 29. -END-
