Bills promoting school security under legislative review

Kansas lawmakers are looking at several bills this session that they suggest could increase security at schools across the state.

Last Wednesday, the House passed House Bill 2773, the Kansas Safe and Secure Schools Act, which establishes statewide security standards and sets funding aside for schools to implement such measures.

As part of the proposed bill, the state board of education would develop and adopt statewide standards for making all public schools and attendance centers operated by school districts in the state safe and secure.

Those security measures could include secured entrances and windows, intrusion detection systems, security cameras and communication systems.
