DeSantis Makes Stop in Jacksonville To Praise New Voucher Program

TOPSHOT- Katie an elementary school teacher in Jefferson County Colorado takes part in a simulated active shooter drill during a three day firearms course for school teachers and administrators sponsored by FASTER Colorado at Flatrock Training Center

Breitbart News reported that Florida's House and Senate passed the legislation in response to the findings of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission.

Ron DeSantis (R) on Wednesday signed a bill that would arm teachers throughout the Sunshine State. About half of the districts in the state now utilize the more narrowly tailored version of the program.

The law expands the Guardian Program created previous year which allowed non-teaching school staff to be trained to carry guns on campus. As of January 2019, 688 guardians had been assigned to public schools in the 25 participating districts.

USA senator proposes ban on loot boxes and microtransactions
There are other games that don't have a randomized box with in-game power-ups but still have in-game currency. Researchers interviewed 144 adult gamers and 113 undergraduates about their use of loot boxes .


Rep. Loranne Ausley, D-Tallahassee, said vouchers "are slowly killing our traditional public schools". This new bill would remove that exception, and allow teachers to be armed with the approval of the school board. Twenty-five of 67 Florida school districts are taking part in the program, including Lake and Broward counties.

Her statement added: "Now, I'm scared for the next generation of students who will grow up afraid of gun violence in their schools; not just from a shooter, but from the guns that could be carried by their teachers". "The Legislature should modify Florida Statute 30.15 (1)(k) to state that upon a majority vote of the School Board, the sheriff shall establish a Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program to aid in the prevention or abatement of active assailant incidents on school premises". DeSantis said he wanted to reward top teachers at high-performing schools, and lauded the new system as a way to get that done.

As it stands, Florida law already requires schools to have at least one armed person on site, which is often a school law enforcement officer.

Blazers force Game 7 with 119 victory over Denver
Curry was trying to help a teammate up when Denver's Will Barton took exception to a slight shove, and the two came face to face. Nikola Jokic continued to make the historical look routine, finishing the loss with 29 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists.


"This legislation continues efforts to proactively enhance coordination between education, law enforcement, and community mental health resources to ensure at-risk students receive the help they need before a tragedy occurs", said Republican President Galvano in a news release. The three tiers are for new teachers who are experts in certain subjects that are needed in many districts; those rated "effective" or "highly effective" whose school has improved a certain amount over the prior three years, and teachers or other staff selected by the principal who must also have high evaluation marks. His lawyers say he would plead guilty if guaranteed a life sentence, but prosecutors want to seek the death penalty.

Story updated to reflect while almost all of the recommendations made by a commission formed after a mass shooting at a Parkland high school took immediate effect, changes to the "guardian" program that makes more teachers eligible to carry guns in schools will be implemented October 1.
