In the wake of incidents around the country, Georgia legislators and state school officials have turned their attention to ensuring students are safe in schools across the state.

State Senator John Albers (R-Roswell) announced this week the creation of the Senate School Safety Study Committee. He was joined by Senate President Pro Tempore Butch Miller (R- Gainesville), Senate Majority Leader Bill Cowsert (R- Athens) and other Senate Members joined Sen. Albers for the announcement.

“Based on current events, we feel that is necessary to place a focus on school safety,” said Sen. Albers. “Each area of our state is unique, and this will not be a ‘one size fits all’ solution. We have to do what is best for each community to ensure that students can learn and thrive in an environment where they not only feel protected but are truly safe.”
