Clear Backpacks Now Required at Marjory Stoneman Douglas
Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will soon be allowed to only wear clear school backpacks on campus.
"Clear backpacks are the only backpacks that will be permitted on campus," said Broward County School Superintendent Robert Runcie said in a letter sent to parents.
The district will provide the bags to students for free.
In addition to the new backpack policy, students and school staff will also be required to wear IDs at all times while on campus.
The school district is also considering whether to use metal-detecting wands at Stoneman Douglas entrances, and could move to install permanent metal detectors in the future.
