AFC Submits Testimony on Protecting Students from Elopement

06.12.2014 | AFC submitted testimony to the New York City Council Committee on Education regarding the proposed bill to equip all exit doors in elementary school buildings and buildings accommodating District 75 programs with an alarm system. We support the targeted use of alarms, but only as a piece of a larger plan. To be successful, any move to protect students from elopement will also need to include targeted training of school staff, improved communication within each school building and a variety of carefully thought out preventive measures.
