RI school swatting calls prompt calls for school safety commission | #hacking | #aihp

PROVIDENCE – Concerned over gun violence around the nation and a handful of “swatting” calls impacting schools locally, Rhode Island lawmakers want to establish a special legislative commission to decide whether safety protocols written into state law should be changed.

On Tuesday, the House Education Committee heard a resolution sponsored by Rep. Jennifer Boylan and nine other Democrats that would create a 20-member group to consider changes. The group would include lawmakers, union leaders, educational advocates, Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Neronha, a school psychologist, high school students and others.

At present, state law generally requires schools to perform one “emergency egress drill” per month. However, only two drills per year are required to be lockdown drills.
