Whereas there exists a need to ensure the safety of school children in the commonwealth, the Secretary of Education and the Secretary of Public Safety are directed to establish regional school safety councils to assist local districts with developing school safety plans that provide for actions that promote safe schools in the area of design, violence prevention, man made and natural hazards, effective prevention and mitigation of such hazards and response to emergencies within school districts. Such councils shall, at a minimum, include representatives from public safety, education, mental health and emergency management and shall be available to local districts before, during and after emergencies and provide technical assistance appropriate for the emergency.
