Summary

Public schools; firearm safety education program. Requires local school boards to provide firearm safety education programs for students in all grades. The bill requires the Board of Education to establish curriculum guidelines for the program, in consultation with the Department of State Police, requires school boards to offer a minimum of two hours of instruction consistent with such guidelines, and requires that the program be taught by a school resource officer, other law-enforcement officer, or a United States Armed Services instructor. The bill prohibits the use of firearms in the program. Current law allows local school boards to provide a firearm safety education program for students in the elementary grades and does not specify who may instruct such program.
