|Subject:||Safe School Walking Route|
|I intend to re-introduce legislation to provide parents with more information in the fight against child predators.
My bill will require school districts to provide a link to the Megan’s Law website on the district homepage, allowing parents an easy reference point to identify threats to their children in and around their home and communities.
Additionally, any mailers or communication that the school sends home concerning transportation will also be required to include the Megan’s Law webpage address. This will provide parents the necessary tools to determine the safety precautions needed along the walking routes to and from the school bus stops.
I believe that these commonsense changes will help parents better keep their children safe while on their walk to school or to the school bus stop, without burdening the school district with a severe fiscal impact.
Please join me in supporting this legislation.
