A Florida law now requires students new to a school district to disclose whether they have received mental health services. The controversial new requirement is one of several school safety measures passed after the February Parkland school shooting. 

The required disclosure is already raising privacy concerns. And parents say they're unsure about what qualifies as mental health services.

Incident reports filed after the Feb. 14, 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School show that first responders asked several times during the critical first minutes to go into the school buildings to help the victims, but their requests were denied by Broward Sheriff's Office (BSO) deputies because the shooter had not been captured or neutralized yet.

The brother of Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz will be allowed to start a new life — out of state, with a new home and job.

A Broward judge allowed 18-year-old Zachary Cruz, who is under court supervision for trespassing at the school his brother attacked, to transfer his probation to Virginia. That's where he'll be under the care of Nexus Services, a company that says its helps people rebuild their lives after incarceration.

At Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s Black History Month Show, a student walked out on stage to read a one-page statement defending the Black Lives Matter movement.

This part of the show was not rehearsed ahead of time, it was a last-minute decision by some of the black student organizers to respond to a letter that ran in the school’s paper.
