A proposal from Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton could make schools across the region safer if it's approved.
Governor Dayton unveiled a $21 million plan today in an attempt to boost school safety, some of which would go to area schools.
The plan includes money for building safety measures alongside mental health services for students who need help. Dayton also touched on the 21 threats against Minnesota schools since the Parkland, Florida shooting, with multiple across east central Minnesota. Some of the local threats include the occurrence at North Branch High School where a 17-year-old is being charged with a felony.
