Minn. schools to get bulletproof whiteboards

They will double as a shield in an active shooter situation, in the same district where a school shooting took lives in 2003

The Daily Mail

COLD SPRING, Minn. — A central Minnesota school district that was the site of a school shooting in 2003 is getting a new device designed to help keep kids safe: bulletproof whiteboards.

The Rocori School District plans to put one of the whiteboards in every classroom to add another layer of defense if a gunman enters school grounds. The boards are designed by Maryland-based Hardwire LLC and they can hang on a wall and be used in class, just like any traditional marker board.

But when the lives of students are threatened, a teacher can use also use one of the boards as a shield. Cold Spring Police Chief Phil Jones says it’s the best development in school safety he’s seen.
