Mendonca Wants RI To Reimburse Schools For Security Check

A state lawmaker says he'll introduce legislation to reimburse public schools that conduct student safety evaluations.
Rep. Kenneth Mendonca, R-Portsmouth, said the state should allocate $650,000 from its general fund to reimburse schools for security evaluations, which typically cost about $1,500.
He said this would help public schools make real changes to improve security for students and staff.
