Safe and Successful Students Act is heading to the Floor of the Louisiana House of Representatives on Wednesday, May 22nd.
Please join us in letting the Louisiana legislators know that is essential to PASS HB 646, the Safe and Successful Students Act filed by Rep. Patricia Haynes Smith.
This bill, HB 646, builds on and improves the current Safe Schools laws here in Louisiana. It better ensures the rehabilitation of troubled students rather than just turning them out of school with no reformative measures taken by the school system. HB 646 also greatly improves the reporting requirements to enable anti-bullying measures to better assist the student population at risk.
Our state’s youth are our future, and there’s a great opportunity at hand to educate each and every one to become respectful, contributing members of society. HB 646 is backed by a strong coalition of organizations committed to safe schools for Louisiana.
