Just days after the tragedy in CT, Mayor Sara Drew announced that officials from Stow, Munroe Falls and the Stow-Munroe Falls Schools will meet regularly to discuss how security can be enhanced within the district.
The aim is to work toward a sustainable plan for school security, according to a City of Stow press release.
Drew met with Munroe Falls Mayor Frank Larson and Stow-Munroe Falls Schools Superintendent Russ Jones Tuesday and began developing a prospective plan, which could include a permanently enhanced police presence in the school district.
Subsequent discussions with local safety forces will take place to determine whether the plan is feasible.
On Monday, Jones issued a statement saying there would be a heavy police presence in the district throughout this week and referenced the new partnership that will focus on protecting his employees and students.
“It is as a community that we will design a solution to this issue," said Drew in a prepared statement. "We continue to keep the families and community members of Newtown, CT in our thoughts and prayers and pledge to work together to ensure a lasting collaboration focused on the needs and well-being of the entire Stow-Munroe Falls community."
