We did it!

Senate Bill 11, Texas' leading school safety bill, was signed in the House of Representatives on May 27th and is now on the governor’s desk.

S.B. 11 marks a huge step forward for student safety and Sandy Hook Promise in Texas!

Thanks to your participation in our first Sandy Hook Promise Statehouse Day as well as your emails and phone calls to legislators, S.B. 11 includes critical language around anonymous reporting, suicide prevention training and mental wellness resources. This includes requiring the Texas Education Agency to make available information on school-based programs that provide prevention or intervention services – which is great news!

This bill will help make Texas students and schools safer, and you helped make it happen!

Rep. Greg Bonnen played a major role in this victory. Send him a note to thank him for his leadership in moving S.B. 11 through the House.

Thank you for all you’ve done over the past few months to help make student safety a priority in Texas. We couldn’t have done it without you – thank you!

Sincerely,

The SHP Policy Team
