Final Report of the sandy hook advisory commission

The Safe School Infrastructure Council Report (―SSIC Report‖) includes a standard requiring classroom and other safe-haven areas to have doors that can be locked from the inside. The Commission cannot emphasize enough the importance of this recommendation. The testimony and other evidence presented to the Commission reveals that there has never been an event in which an active shooter breached a locked classroom door.

A STUDY OF ACTIVE SHOOTER INCIDENTS IN THE UNITED STATES BETWEEN 2000 AND 2013

The 39 incidents that occurred in educational environments (27 schools, 12 IHEs) resulted in 117 individuals killed and 120 wounded. Note that in this study, schools are defined as pre-kindergarten through 12th grade (PreK-12) educational facilities; incidents that occurred at school-related facilities such as school administration buildings are also included in this category. Incidents in educational facilities account for some of the higher casualty counts.

A better solution is doors that lock from the inside and can be
opened from the outside with a key, said Jim Narva, the
association's national director. The group cites research by the
Sandy Hook commission that found no shooter has ever
breached a locked classroom door.
