      • 201-300 students 48,000 square feet
      • 301-or more students 52,000 square feet
  • $250,000 of the common school construction account--state appropriation is provided solely for the Superintendent of Public Instruction to create interagency agreements for the following purposes:

In addition, for major construction projects, consider school building plans and designs that promote an optimal level of security, direct control and observation, and as few entrances as possible.
  • The bill directs school districts to work collaboratively with local law enforcement and school security personnel to develop an emergency response system using technology to expedite the response and arrival of law enforcement in the event of a threat or emergency at a school.
