U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson of Georgia is focused on improving school safety, and this week, he joined 12 other Senators in introducing legislation that would expand the way federal dollars can be used in the schools.

The School Safety and Mental Health Services Improvement Act, S.2513, would allow public schools in Georgia and all states to improve school safety by expanding the ways federal dollars may be used for school counselors, alarm systems, security cameras and crisis intervention training. “Keeping our schools safe requires a multi-pronged approach and all of us working together at the local, state and federal levels,” said Isakson, who is a member of the education committee and a co-sponsor of the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 and the 21st Century Cures Act of 2016.
