School Safety Committee To Meet This Month


Following the violent deaths of two of Wilmington’s Howard High School of Technology students this year, the Delaware General Assembly passed Senate Concurrent Resolution 83, establishing a committee to examine school safety issues and make recommendations to enhance safety in and around schools. The 23-person group, consisting of educators, law enforcement and state lawmakers will meet later this month to begin addressing bullying, cyberbullying and social media, suicide, and violence, according to the News Journal. The committee is to come up with their recommendations no later than October 17.
