HB 7110, the bill addressing Classroom Safety, has been moved out of the Education Committee with a unanimous vote, but with revision. After intense opposition from the Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents and certain other groups, gone is the portion that would have required superintendents to report dangerous and disruptive incidents to Boards of Education on a monthly basis. While this is an unfortunate loss, the bill, if passed, will still established a legislative foothold to build upon and strengthen in future years.
