TAMPA, Fla. — The Hillsborough County School Board is set to meet Tuesday afternoon to vote on the adoption of its threat assessment teams policy.
The threat assessment policy helps administrators, teachers and students know what to do if there is a threat.
District spokesperson Tanya Arja said the adoption of the policy is the final step to fully implement school security measures required by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act.
Arja said the district had procedures in place before the bill became law in March 2018.
Hillsborough County Public Schools is the eighth-largest school system in the country with 206,841 students, according to the U.S. Education Department.
The school board meeting starts at 3:30 p.m. ET Tuesday.
