Statutes Amended In Order of Appearance
Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Safety Drill Act. Makes changes to provisions of the Act concerning law enforcement drills. Provides that no later than 90 days after the first day of each school year, schools must conduct at least one walk-through law enforcement drill (rather than one law enforcement drill) that addresses an active threat or active shooter within a school building. Makes changes concerning how law enforcement drills are conducted and the exemption of students. Requires drill content to be created by a team that includes administrators, teachers, school-based health and mental health professionals, and law enforcement agency members. Sets forth requirements and recommendations for the drill content. Within 2 weeks following the execution of a walk-through drill, requires the team to meet to evaluate the implementation of the drill and to determine and review if any students or educators exhibited signs of trauma during or after the drill so that the team may evaluate if changes in the drill content or procedures are required. Effective January 1, 2022.
