John Schroder

A state lawmaker who heads the House homeland security committee is seeking ideas from educators and parents about ways to improve school safety.

Covington Rep. John Schroder has set up a special email address to solicit comments. He's asking people to send their ideas to schoolsafetycomments@legis.la.gov.

Schroder's committee held an earlier hearing to get suggestions from state education leaders and law enforcement officials about how to strengthen school security.
