Lori Alhadeff and Ryan Petty are holding a news conference Tuesday morning outside the Broward County Governmental Center to formally make the announcement.
Alhadeff is running for District 4 and Petty filed for candidacy for the at-large seat, District 8.
"There is a lot more to do, and that's why I'm filing to run for school board, so I can have a seat at table, so I can represent parents all over the district who deserve to have their children come home to them every afternoon after school", Petty said.
They're also calling for transparency and accountability.
The group is also supporting former Stoneman Douglas teacher Richard Mendelsonagainst incumbent Laurie Rich Levinson for the District 6 seat, which includes Weston, Cooper City and Davie.
"We just need to fix the execution and implementation problems that plague the district", Petty said. She said discipline policies must be "revamped" and to "meet somewhere in the middle". "I want to do everything possible to make this school system a model that other districts will look and try to replicate". "When I am elected on the school board I will ask him the tough questions and I will work with him". The incumbent, Abby Freedman, has not filed to run for re-election. The mission of her foundation is to make schools across the country safe for all students and faculty so that similar tragedies will be prevented in the future.
"If I don't get in there and change it, it's unlikely to change", Petty said. Initially formed to address concerns with school security, the group started focusing on replacing School Board members after feeling the district wasn't responsive to their concerns, said John Daly Sr., who runs the group's Facebook page. In addition to running for the school board, she and Petty said they would also continue to advocate for gun control, the Miami Herald reports.
