Relating to immunity from liability of a school district or open-enrollment charter school for certain actions of security personnel.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 811 would provide immunity for a school district or open-enrollment charter school for any reasonable action taken by security personnel to maintain the safety of the campus, including action relating to possession or use of a firearm. This immunity also extends to damages resulting from reasonable action taken by a district or school employee who has written permission from the board of trustees or governing body of the school to carry a firearm on campus. Immunity provided by this bill would not preempt current standing laws and immunity.
