Comments

MRWBA Legislative Committee, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

Directs local school boards to require schools within its division to fully collaborate with chief law enforcement officer of locality when conducting required school safety audits. This is a notable change to current law - which only requires the division superintendent to make results of the audit available to chief law enforcement upon request.
