Montgomery County, Maryland, Council members Will Jawando and Craig Rice on Monday announced a task force aimed at providing more resources for students and less of a police presence in schools. While Jawando and Rice have been on opposite sides of the discussion of school resource officers in the past, they have come together to lead the effort to implement more social and emotional services and mentoring for students — as well as the money to make it possible. Restorative justice and services focused on positive reinforcement that will help students reach goals are also at the center of the new task force.
