Folmer to host school safety roundtable next week in Lebanon

LEBANON – Senator Mike Folmer (R-Lebanon/Dauphin/York) and the Senate Majority Policy Committee, chaired by Senator David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks), will hold a public roundtable discussion with key stakeholders on school safety efforts next week.

The roundtable discussion will be held on Wednesday, August 8 at 10 a.m. at Cedar Crest High School in the Large Group Instruction Room, 115 E. Evergreen Road in Lebanon.

“Local input on school safety measures is vital in further deliberating what can be done to help protect students and faculty,” Folmer said. “Different regions of our state have different needs, and hearing from county law enforcement, superintendents and stakeholders within the 48th Senatorial District can help me advocate for their needs at the state level.”

The roundtable will feature a discussion on recently enacted reforms addressing school safety concerns, pending proposals before the state legislature and a focus on new proposals that could be pursued this fall and early next year.

“We realize a one-sized-fits-all approach won’t work when it comes to school safety,” Chairman Argall said. “I applaud Senator Folmer for bringing the committee to hear the concerns of central Pennsylvania school districts and stakeholders.”

The public is invited to attend.
