NAESP Responds to Congressional Approval of Gun Safety Legislation

The National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) applauds Congressional approval of The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, especially in its investment in schools, children, and family mental health services. The bill includes resources to expand mental health and supportive services in schools and improvements to schoolwide learning conditions and school safety, which is a significant first step in ensuring that students and staff can go to school and thrive in communities where they are safe.
