    McDonnell signs school safety bills into law

    Gov. Bob McDonnell signed 11 school safety bills June 5, four of which were sponsored by local state Del. David Ramadan (R-87th).

    Ramadan was the author of House Bill 2347, which allows for high school principals to disclose juvenile suspect and criminal charge information to a threat assessment team, but prohibits that team from further disclosure.

    Other school safety bills include House Bill 2343, which creates a grant program for school security equipment; House Bill 2344, which requires schools to establish policies for the creation of threat assessment teams in each schools; and House Bill 2345, which requires the Virginia Department of Education to establish a model critical incident response training program.

    School safety became a higher priority for many politicians after the December shootings in Newtown, Conn.
