Parents of Stoneman Douglas shooting victims running for Broward School board

Scot Peterson's $8K-plus pension: It pays to be cowardly

The Broward County School Board represents the nation's sixth-largest school district.

Two parents who lost children in February's massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School announced their candidacies for county school board seats Tuesday, saying they want to improve safety and increase accountability. Broward County school officials revealed last week that Cruz had been referred to, but did not fully participate in the program when he was in middle school.

Petty and Alhadeff said they chose to run for school board seats in order to have a "seat at the table" to make changes in their own communities.

"I don't want Alyssa's life to be in vain". "I'm doing this because I don't want another parent to go through the pain and anguish that I have to go through every day". "I did not want any child to ever have to say to their mother, mommy, am I going to die today when I go to school?" she added. The mission of her foundation is to make schools across the country safe for all students and faculty so that similar tragedies will be prevented in the future. "If they don't feel safe, it's really hard to learn". The program has been scrutinized since the school shooting. Alhadeff also said discipline systems at the district need to be "revamped" because they have "gone from the complete extremes-from over-disciplining kids to not disciplining kids, which we have now".

"Prior to Valentine's Day, I didn't understand impact school board has on our schools ..."

Both candidates plan to center their races around school safety and both say their work on changing gun laws in Florida is a start. "I felt an obligation to work on this legislation to honor my daughter and make sure this never happens again".
