Lawmaker wants suggestions on school safety
BATON ROUGE - A state lawmaker is seeking ideas from educators and parents about ways to improve school safety.
Covington Rep. John Schroder leads the House homeland security committee.
He's asking people to send their comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Schroder's committee held a hearing to get suggestions from state education leaders and law enforcement officials about how to strengthen school security.
The review comes in the wake of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December.
In addition to the House review, Governor Jindal has formed a 13-member study group to look at the issue and offer ideas in advance of the regular legislative session.
