CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) — In the wake of the June’s mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed executive order 97, providing additional resources to help parents, teachers, and law enforcement protect students. 

Now, Lee is outlining the effects of that order, beginning with thousands of families now using the SafeTN app, which allows users to anonymously report safety concerns at school.
