Key Issues

School Safety

Sabio wants to increase security measures in schools. Sabio believes that the root cause of gun violence is an increase in mental illness and suicide rates in America rather than a lack of gun regulations. He plans to implement the use of security window film on all entry points in schools, develop a comprehensive emergency action plan unique to every school as well as hands-on training for teachers, and expand the use of the Foster Parent curriculum for “at-risk” kids for FCPS teachers and staff to identify and intervene with students displaying signs of mental health struggles [3].
