Broward Schools Town Hall On Safety Underway In Coral Springs


A STORY IN CORAL SPRINGS. THE BROWARD COUNTY SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENTS IS MEETING WITH PARENTS TO TALK ABOUT SCHOOL SECURITY. WE ARE ALLOWED TO GO IN TO SEE AND HEAR WHAT IS BEING DISCUSSED. CAREY CODD IS LIVE AT THE MEETING TONIGHT WITH MORE. Reporter: IT IS A PACKED AUDITORIUM HERE AT J.P. TERRA BELLA HIGH SCHOOL IN CORAL SPRINGS. IT IS SO PACKED THEY HAD TO OPEN AN OVERFLOW ROOM IN THE CAFETERIA AT THE SCHOOL. AFTER SPEAKING WITH SEVERAL PARENTS WHO ARE ATTENDING THIS MEETING TONIGHT THERE WILL BE SOME SPECIFIC AND CHALLENGING QUESTIONS FOR THE SUPERINTENDENT AND THE OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICTS LEADERS. IT WILL BEGIN WITH A SCHOOL SAFETY PRESENTATION. BY THE SECURITY FIRM NAMED SAFE HAVEN INTERNATIONAL. THEY WILL DISCUSS SECURITY CHANGES THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN PLACE OVER THE PAST YEAR. SCHOOL DISTRICT LEADERS WILL ANSWER QUESTIONS AND LISTEN TO CONCERNS FROM THE AUDIENCE. THEY ARE LIKELY TO BE LOTS OF CONCERNS AND MANY QUESTIONS. THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS HAS RECEIVED A LOT OF CRITICISM FOLLOWING THE PARKLAND SHOOTING. LAST WEEK THE SCHOOL DISTRICT RESPONDED TO SOME OF THE CRITICISM BY CREATING SAFER SPACES AND CLASSROOM AREAS. WHERE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS AND STAFF WOULD BE HIDDEN FROM A DOORWAY OR A WINDOW LOOKING INTO A CLASSROOM. THEY ALSO FORMALIZED A CODE RED POLICY HERE IN THE DISTRICT. I SPOKE WITH SEVERAL PARENTS BEFORE THE MEETING GOT UNDERWAY AT 6:30 PM. ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE HOPING TO ADDRESS TONIGHT. DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR DAUGHTER IS SAFE? I DON’T KNOW. WITH EVERYTHING IN THE MEDIA IT IS HARD TO TELL. YOU HEAR BOTH SIDES. ONE SIDE SAYS THEY ARE SAFE AND THE OTHER SIDE SAYS THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE AFRAID OF. IT IS SCARY AS A PARENT NOT KNOWING IF YOUR CHILD IS GOING TO BE SAFE. MY BIG THING IS METAL DETECTORS. IT WAS PROMISED AFTER FEBRUARY 14. Reporter: SEVERAL OF THE FAMILIES OF THE 17 PARKLAND VICTIMS ARE HERE. I SPOKE WITH DEBBIE HICKS AND WHOSE HUSBAND CHRIS WAS A CAMPUS MONITOR AT STONEMAN DOUGLAS. HE WAS MURDERED LAST FAIRBURY
