Douglas High School Building Where Attack Took Place Will Be Torn Down!

"Parents and students have resoundingly told me they can't go back into that building regardless of what we do. 

"Just looking at that building and talking about it now, I have goosebumps out to my head. I don't know how teachers, students could get back in that building. I don't even know how we're going to open the whole campus, period."

Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie told Sun Sentinel.


We learned that it's common for school districts to tear down buildings that were the sites of deadly shootings: 

Sandy Hook Elementary School, for instance, was demolished and rebuilt at a different site after a shooter in 2012 gunned down 20 young children and 6 staffers. 

Columbine High School, the site of the 1999 attack that killed 12 students and a teacher, underwent $1.2 million in repairs and renovations. The high school demolished the library where many of the victims were killed and replaced it with an atrium.
