Alyssa's Law was recently signed by Governor Murphy and requires all New Jersey public schools to install silent panic alarms that will alert law enforcement during emergencies. The NJ Schools Development Authority is tasked with funding and managing the installation of the silent panic alarms in partnership with the NJ Dept of Education. The NJDOE seeks feedback, comments and concerns from the public on school security and the school security bond. Please review the "Securing our Children's Future" Bond Fact Sheet and complete the online survey by 6/18/19.
