SAISD Board Approves Resolution Calling for Lawmakers to Increase Student Safety
March 5, 2018 ― The San Antonio ISD Board of Trustees today passed a resolution related to school shootings in the United States.
As a member of the Council of Great City Schools, SAISD stands in solidarity with member districts across the country that are concerned with the safety and security of children and their families adversely affected by the continued incidences of gun violence on campuses and in communities;
“We continue to share in the nation’s collective grief following the Florida school shooting, said Board President Patti Radle. “Student safety is essential. We believe now is the time for action. Legislation is needed to protect our students.”
Trustees called for legislative action to prevent any more students and educators from being the victims of a school shooting. They also announced their opposition to arming teachers.
