Parkland Parents Who Lost Kids Are Running For School Board

The Broward Sheriff's Office released an unedited of surveillance video outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School during and after confessed school shooter Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people on Feb. 14 2018

Two parents of students shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are running together for two seats on the Broward County School Board, Politico is reporting. Alhadeff is running for a seat based in Parkland, while Petty is running for a county-wide seat.

"My eyes were open that day and I decided I needed to be more involved in how issues like safety and security are handled at the district to make sure our students and teachers are safe", Petty said.

"The PROMISE program needs to be revamped", Alhadeff said Tuesday. The foundation's mission is to prevent violence in schools "through advocacy for programs and policies focused on early identification and intervention of at-risk youth".

"We've gone from the complete extreme of over-disciplining kids to not disciplining kids, which is what we have now", Alhadeff said. "I want to do everything possible to make this school system a model that other districts will look and try to replicate". Alhadeff said a spot on the school board is the best way she can think of to work toward improving school safety: "I [don't] want any parent to go through the anguish I went thorough or for any child to say, 'Mommy, am I going to die at school today?'" she said, per NBC News.

The company says that this will happen by the end of the fiscal year 2018, which translates to 31st March 2019. But as far as purchasing retail copies of games, it looks like the party is over for Vita.

Petty will run for District 8, an at-large seat.

Alhadeff is a former teacher with a master's degree in education.

Petty is a telecom, media and technology entrepreneur who previously served as vice president of product development and innovation at ADT. But working for change takes more than just a concept, he said. "I'm looking forward to speaking to all the successes we have had in the school district and address all the places we still have to get better".

Korn, who filed for re-election months ago, said her "heart is heavy" and her condolences go out to the Petties and all the families who affected by the tragedy.

Traders often add the Plus Directional Indicator (+DI) and Minus Directional Indicator (-DI) to identify the direction of a trend. The indicator is non-directional meaning that it gauges trend strength whether the stock price is trending higher or lower.

Alhadeff and Petty are being endorsed by a group of Parkland parents called Concerned Citizens of Broward County.

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

School Board member Nora Rupert, a longtime critic of Superintendent Robert Runcie, is the only incumbent the group plans to support.

Both were scheduled to officially announce their candidacies on Tuesday.
