Status Of Executive Order 97
Tuesday Governor Lee gave an update on the status of his executive order 97, which dealt with improving school security. Lee issued that order after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas during the spring. According to the governor:
More than 10,000 Tennesseans are now using the Safe TN app, a free resource to quickly and confidentially report safety concerns at a child’s school. There were 2,000 downloads this month alone.
Every Tennessee school has completed a physical school security assessment – a total of 1,838 schools. 104 Districts, that’s more than two-thirds of school districts, have participated in school safety training.
Every school district has received an updated School Safety Plan Template.
State and local law enforcement have collaborated to provide proven, hands-on active shooter training course in each Grand division of the state…west, middle and east Tennessee.
Updated training has been provided to more than 600 School Resource Officers in the state.
