The chairman of the state’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission is making some claims about local school districts that one state senator calls “disturbing” if they are true. Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, who chairs the commission, testified before the Senate and House Education committees on Tuesday and accused school districts of dragging their feet and showing “no sense of urgency” in implementing the school safety law enacted last year after the school shooting in Parkland. “I do not agree that there has been a lack of urgency,” Andrea Messina, executive director of the Florida School Boards Association, insisted Wednesday.
