Making schools safer for Illinois children is the intent of legislation to establish an Illinois School Security and Standards Task Force.
Senate Bill 1340 creates the School Security and Standards Task Force to study the current security conditions, make recommendations and draft minimum standards for schools to provide a safer learning environment for students. The Task Force is to submit its report to the General Assembly and the Governor.
The Task Force brings together individuals who have knowledge, experience, and expertise in the security field, or who have worked within school systems. Appointed members would include parents, law enforcement officials, firefighters, security professionals, teachers and school administrators.
