JEFFERSON CITY — There's a new organization to help Missouri schools with emergency planning and security issues.

The Missouri School Boards' Association says it's teaming up with the state Department of Public Safety to form the Center for Education Safety.

The center will work with preschools, K-12 schools and higher education institutions to increase school safety and emergency preparations. The center is to open Sept. 1 in Jefferson City.

The center will have an advisory committee of state agency officials, school representatives, emergency responders and law enforcement officers. Their task will be to provide guidance on specific programs and services for the center.
