Improving School Safety In Virginia Schools

A committee tasked with improving safety in Virginia schools presented two dozen policy recommendations Wednesday that it will submit to the General Assembly.

The House Select Committee on School Safety is calling for state funding to pull school counselors in the state off of administrative duties, so they can focus on students health and well being.

This falls in line with other recommendations, including a statewide mental health and suicide prevention tip line and a requirement that mental and emotional health be taught in schools.
