The issue of how to keep our kids safe in school is one hot topic, and the Oregon Legislature will take it up this session.

 

District 59 Representative John Huffman says he's been working with a proactive group School Safety Proposal, to find a reasonable and balanced plan for the legislature to consider.  "It's definitely going to be a hot topic this session. And I’m trying to bring it to a reasonable conversation with balance and common sense, saying, you know it's difficult to have 100% security for any facility, school or otherwise. But, could we be doing better in every facility and encouraging every school district to look at their policies and procedures."

 

Huffman says many of the school districts he's spoken with are already working to increase security, some even are considering armed guards.

 

But he says there is not a "one size fits all" fix for the issue, and the mental health component also needs to be considered.
