Armed guards in Marlboro schools

Going to school in Marlboro is going to be quite different for the next three months. Due to the tragic events at the Newtown, Connecticut Sandy Hook Elementary School, school officials nationwide have taken a second look at their safety measures. Here’s a breakdown of the outcome of recent Marlboro Board of Education discussions and the conclusion which they have reached.

  • Effective January 2, 2013, armed police officers are stationed at the front doors of all eight schools in the district.
  • There will be a ninety day trial, after which an assessment will be made so as to determine steps for the future of maintaining safety in the schools.
  • This experiment will cost $100,000 and be taken out of the district’s general fund.
  • The district is looking to improve upon the currently established security measures of its Visitor Management System where visitor drivers’ licenses are scanned and checked in a database.

What are your thoughts on measures that can be taken to protect student and teacher security?
