Broward Co schools did not train students for active shooter situation

Quote:When a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the students had never been through a schoolwide drill teaching them how to protect themselves.

Broward County, Fla., schools have enhanced training for teachers to cover active-shooter situations, but — 19 years after Columbine and five years after Sandy Hook — there is no requirement that schools hold active-shooter drills for students.

Students at Stoneman Douglas have been drilled about what to do if there is a fire or tornado, but not for when someone shows up with an AR-15 rifle.

Quote:toneman Douglas teachers received “Code Red” training in January, designed for threats inside the school and classrooms that require the school to be locked down. Included in the Code Red training are scenarios that include active shooters, Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said Friday.

After receiving the training, teachers are supposed to outline different scenarios to students and explain what they should do. A Code Red drill was scheduled for this month, March, district officials said.

Quote:n Palm Beach County, Code Red drills are conducted twice a year, before Oct. 31 and in January, officials said.

The drills involve students, teachers and staff. During the drills, “everyone holds in place, no phones (are) used, no one comes to or leaves campus, etc., as would be the case in an active shooter situation,” school district spokeswoman Julie Houston Trieste said.

Broward County requires only that schools hold one “critical incident” drill each year, which could be based on an active shooter, a bomb threat or some other emergency. Runcie said many schools will have drills that cover every scenario.

Strange. I live in lightly populated southern Ohio, my wife is a 4th grade teacher, and they have "lock down drills" 2-3 times a year in addition to the usual tornado and fire drills multiple times a year.
