INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Jennifer McCormick, today issued a letter to the Indiana General Assembly and the State’s U.S. Senators and Representatives urging them to act on addressing school safety in Indiana.

“As I previously stated, we are heartbroken over yet another mass shooting which took place in a school. Each day, Indiana schools set safety as a top priority. We train; we partner. We fully understand the importance surrounding this enormous responsibility. As a Department, we remain committed to providing the resources and guidance our schools need to keep safety a top priority. I am urging our State Legislators and Congressional Delegation to do the same.”
