Comprehensive School Safety
There is no single step to school safety. Kristine Kraus survived a shooting as a middle school student. As a mom and survivor, Kristine understands the fears of parents and students share about school safety.
We need a comprehensive approach to school safety that does not focus on arming our teachers. Additionally, it is not enough to entrust the lives of our students with “thoughts and prayers”. Our children need action and they need it now. Funding for highly trained resource officers and mental health should be priority #1.
Ending Bullying in Schools
School safety involves more than school shooting prevention. Bullying is still a pervasive problem for students of all ages in Seminole County schools. Students should feel safe at school and should not be made to feel unsafe due to their race, religion, ability or sexual orientation. Kristine will advocate for inclusivity of all students as Seminole County’s next School Board member.
