RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- A bipartisan public school safety bill hailed by its sponsors as among the most comprehensive in the nation is getting its first review by North Carolina House members. The House Education Committee scheduled debate Tuesday on a measure that would set aside tens of millions of dollars to help school districts hire more school police officers, counselors and psychologists. Other money would allow districts to install in every classroom panic alarms to alert authorities to trouble. The measure doesn't seek to change state gun laws in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting in December. It does require more routine crisis planning exercises and directs districts to review school safety plans. Gov. Pat McCrory wants the legislature to provide more funds for a new school safety center. (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
