The New Jersey School Boards Association’s Task Force on Firearm Safety in Schools has organized and is beginning its work. The task force includes 17 local school board members, NJSBA staff and resource persons.

As part of its efforts, the task force recently sent out a survey to members of boards of education. If you are a board member, you received the survey via email.

If you have not taken the survey, NJSBA urges you to check your email and take a few minutes to respond. If you have trouble finding the email, please check your junk folder in case it went there by mistake.

Your responses and insights will help the task force carry out its important work, as reported in an earlier issue of School Board Notes.
