Commission Reviewing Parkland Shooting to Study Whether Safety Has Improved
The state commission reviewing the Parkland school shooting is resuming its work, three months after producing a tough report that called for extensive safety reforms and investigations of the Broward County, Fla., school district and sheriff's office employees.
The 20-member Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission will look at whether school safety has improved since the Feb. 14, 2018, massacre and whether problems identified in the report are being addressed.
The panel will examine a range of issues in its next phase of investigation, including whether districts are complying with state law that requires every school to have an armed police officer or staff person.
