NASFM Resolution on Classroom Door Security & Locking Hardware

Many schools and school districts have taken measures to ensure the safety of occupants in classrooms in the event of a threatening situation.  Some of the proposed or implemented solutions that specifically affect classroom doors may compromise aspects of life safety while attempting to address security. 
Recognizing this dilemma, NASFM members, while attending the NASFM Annual Conference in Nashville last week, approved a Resolution on Classroom Door Security & Locking Hardware.
Along with the resolution, a School Security Suggested Classroom Door Checklist is encouraged to be distributed broadly, with the goal of achieving awareness of the fire safety issues involved in classroom door security.
