TAKE ACTION: Tell legislators to protect educators during active shooter training
Earlier this year, teachers were shot with plastic pellets during an active shooter training, resulting in some injuries. Although this may be an isolated incident, this must be prevented in the future.
HB 1004 would make various changes to the Indiana safe schools grant program, including permitting safe schools grants to be used to provide students with school-based mental health or social emotional wellness services. These supports have the best potential to address the root causes of these tragedies.
Within HB 1004, active shooter drills would be required. This bill must be amended to protect participants during these training.
