Schools in Virginia and Maryland are boosting security before school starts in the Fall
Four months after two students died in a shooting on campus, the district is layering security measures to keep students safe.
The School Board of Broward County, including Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School, has revealed what it is doing to create safer schools.
It happened at 11:46 a.m. on a Friday, just three weeks before the Parkland shooting. A southeastern university issued a campus-wide emergency notification advising a gunman was on or near campus, and that individuals should seek protective shelter immediately.
Michigan State University and Notre Dame are fierce competitors, but off the field, they are among university police departments nationwide who join forces by employing specially trained Vapor Wake K-9s with one goal: keeping campuses safe.

According to officials, some of the security upgrades were already in motion, but the Parkland shooting has heightened the focus on student safety.
