• Press Conference

  • Following the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, information has been expected of, requested from and provided by Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) to the public. This heartbreaking tragedy has prompted reviews of District systems, protocols, programs and records. In this climate of voluminous demands for information, the District has strived to respond as quickly as possible with the information available at the time. When new information is discovered, the District has shared updates as part of our ongoing commitment to transparency.

    In light of aggressive media coverage, we have also seen information about the District misrepresented. We want to ensure the public has correct and accurate information, as well as context regarding the District’s operations and activities, including issues associated with Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Therefore, BCPS is providing THE FACT SHEET.
