WILLIAMSPORT – Senator Gene Yaw (R-23) will host the Senate Majority Policy Committee, chaired by Senator David G. Argall (R-29), for a roundtable discussion on school safety efforts next week with local school superintendents and administrative staff.
The roundtable discussion will be held on Thursday, August 16 at 1 p.m. at the Pennsylvania College of Technology, Bush Campus Center, One College Avenue in Williamsport.
“Enacting common sense legislation to protect students, teachers and school staff has been a priority for the legislature in recent months,” Yaw said. “This roundtable discussion with our superintendents and school officials will provide us with more insight on how best to address challenges and implement solutions that can further safeguard everyone moving forward.”
“I commend Senator Yaw for bringing the Senate Majority Policy Committee to Williamsport to listen to the concerns and suggestions when it comes to how we best protect our children, educators and school staff in north central Pennsylvania,” Argall said. “These conversations are critical because the needs and suggestions vary depending on where in the state you are located. School safety does not have a one-size-fits-all solution. We need to hear from every corner of the state on how we address this critical issue.”
The roundtable discussion will feature a brief summary of recently passed legislation, pending proposals that are awaiting action by the General Assembly and a focus on new ideas and school safety solutions from local participants.
The event is open to the public.
An agenda and more information will be found on Senator Yaw’s website at SenatorGeneYaw.com and on the committee’s website at policy.pasenategop.com.
