This past week, the House passed Senate Bill 139, another piece of legislation that is designed to benefit of our state’s students.
SB 139 would allow local school systems, charter schools and college and career academies to develop and submit new pathways, or focused programs of study. This measure would equip our state’s middle and high school students with the resources needed to attain jobs in high-demand fields after graduation and expand educational opportunities for all of Georgia’s students.
The House also adopted Resolution 1414, which will examine how to best protect our state’s schools from violence and terror related attacks. It is important that we study how to best protect Georgia’s students, teachers and school staff in a fiscally and constitutionally responsible manner.
