HB2327: School Entity Executive Session

 

Summary

This legislation would amend the Public School Code to exempt public school entity discussions of security and emergency preparedness from open meeting requirements. This bill will establish these discussions as an acceptable reason to hold an executive session. This is to allow school boards and boards of trustees to openly discuss security issues, such as plans for evacuation or lockdown, staff training, communication procedures, and the overall physical security of school buildings, without fear that an outsider will use this information for harmful purposes.
