• School Board asks federal ban on assault weapons, requests more funding for mental health care

    The Board of Trustees of the Pacific Grove Unified School District last night, at the Feb. 14, 2013 school board meeting, passed a resolution asking for a federal ban on the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity clips”as a first step toward removing these extremely dangerous and unnecessary weapons as a threat to students, teachers, staff, and the community.”
    The Board reinforced language stating that they believe armed guards at schools and armed faculty and/or staff are not desirable, either.

    Importantly, the Board also called on the California State Legislature “to reinstate adequate funding to support mental health services in schools to aid in the identification and treatment of young people at high risk for committing violent acts.”

    The full text of the resolution, called Resolution 921, can be found at http://www.pgusd.org/agendas/1213/021413bp_revised.pdf on page 60. The reinforcing language will be added to the final document.
