Rocori School District Adding Bulletproof Whiteboards In Classrooms

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - 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 whiteboards are designed by Maryland-based Hardwire LLC. They can hang on a wall and be used in class, just like any other marker board. But when the lives of students are threatened, a teacher can use it as a shield.

Cold Spring Police Chief Phil Jones says it's the best development in school safety he's seen. Schools in North Dakota and Maryland currently use the whiteboards. Rocori will be the first in Minnesota.
