Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey sent out a flurry of tweets Thursday on stopping school violence, ahead of releasing his full legislative proposal.

The governor suggested creating a centralized tip line to report concerns of school safety. He also wants more money and enhanced training for school resource officers.

In a series of seven tweets, Ducey also shared photos of stakeholder meetings about protecting kids in class, but he has not met with the kids who staged a sit-in in the governor's lobby Wednesday.

The students are organizing March For Our Lives Phoenix. It's part of a nationwide event on March 24th. Spurred to action by the survivors of the school massacre in Parkland, FL, the marchers will demand changes to gun laws and increases in school counselors.
