Broward School Board may approve new hard corners, Code Red rules

The Broward School Board expects to approve new policies designed to correct security failures identified after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High.

A new policy on Code Red and other emergency codes is up for a final vote today, as is a policy requiring schools to identify spaces for students to hide in the event of an active shooter.

Members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission criticized Superintendent Robert Runcie in November for not having enacted these policies already and accused him of lacking urgency. He pledged to start working immediately on the policies.

The Stoneman Douglas gunman was halfway through his six-minute rampage before anyone issued a “Code Red,” signaling an immediate danger requiring students to hide behind locked doors. As a result, some students were caught in hallways and killed.
