Federal Commission on School Safety Finally Meets (June 4, 2018)

The  Federal Commission on School Safety held its first field visit on May 31 at a Maryland elementary school. At the meeting, the commission focused on positive behavioral interventions and supports. Sadly, it was without three of the four cabinet secretaries who make up the commission, despite the meeting being held so close to DC. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, and Homeland Security Secretary Kristen Nielsen sent surrogates in their stead. The full commission has not met since March.
