House Bill 7291An Act Concerning School Security, requires the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) to update school security and safety plan standards, simplify school security reporting requirements and infrastructure grant applications, and identify qualified school security consultants and limit the existing registry to such individuals only.

“We set out to form the School Safety Working Group to answer the question, ‘Are we doing everything we can to keep our kids safe at school?’” said Rep. Sredzinski, co-sponsor of the bill and Ranking Member of the Legislature’s Public Safety Committee. “I thank Former State Representative Brian Ohler for helping to put this team together. Many ideas came out of this group, including the physical security of the buildings, school safety personnel, and even social-emotional learning, among other instructional items. This is a great bill – it passed out of the Public Safety Committee unanimously thanks to the help of Chairman Verrengia and will be done within available appropriations, so it has no fiscal impact on the State of Connecticut.”
