In a significant step towards enhancing the safety of special needs students, the Florida House Choice and Innovation Subcommittee passed HB 1655. Sponsored by Reps. Tramont and Chambliss, the bill mandates cameras in special needs classrooms in public and charter K-12 schools. It aims to protect children while ensuring privacy, with parents having limited access to footage. Concerns about funding equity were raised, but the majority supported the measure, emphasizing its importance in empowering vulnerable students. HB 1655 now moves to the PreK-12 Appropriations Subcommittee for further consideration, with a target implementation date of July 1.
