Summary as passed:
School safety audits. Directs local school boards to require schools to conduct school safety audits annually, requires the audits to include specific recommendations, and provides that the results of such school safety audits shall be made public within 90 days of completion. However, the local school board retains authority to withhold or limit the release of any security plans and specific vulnerability assessment components, which are provided a qualified exemption from the Freedom of Information Act. The exemption from the FOI will not be construed to prohibit the disclosure of records relating to the effectiveness of security plans after a fire, explosion, natural disaster or other catastrophic event, or after any person has been injured or threatened with personal injury. Current law defines the school safety audit as a written assessment of the safety conditions in each public school that identifies and develops solutions for various physical and personal safety and security concerns.
