A new website, www.schoolsafetyproposal.com is getting a lot of attention from Central Oregonians as well as the rest of the nation.

 

Redmond parent Mandi Puckett started the website after the Newtown, Connecticut shooting and recently spoke at the Redmond School Board about her proposal.  "Really, its about not going to the extremes of armed SWAT-team machine guns. It is about finding smart, reasonable approaches to this, and they're there. If money is an issue, then we need to start looking more creatively and outside the box in what resources that we do have at our disposal. Because there are people that are saying on this website, and they're signing up 'I’m one that would be willing to volunteer.' So we need to look at the people that we know and trust anyway that are trained and capable to enforce the law to do that to protect our kids and our school staff."

 

Puckett says her proposal is a visual one: a three legged stool with a leg for prevention, treatment and enforcement that will bring a balanced approach to school safety.

 

She has been working with Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins and Oregon Representative John Huffman to bring the plan to Oregon legislators this session.
