Since the shooting in Uvalde, Texas, school security has been a hot topic for administrators, staff, and families with the topic popping up frequently at board meetings. The focus on security has been made all the more acute by a series of reported threats across the Northeast Kingdom that forced several schools to shut down while police investigated. At a Caledonia Central School District meeting Monday the board discussed school security with CCSU Superintendent Mark Tucker. Tucker noted that a Waterford resident had reached out with questions and concerns about security after the shooting in Texas and even offered to fundraise to help provide resources to boost security and conduct safety inspections at the school. Tucker told the board that Vermont Agency of Education has a school safety director that has scheduled time to tour the three schools in CCSD – Waterford, Walden and Barnet – to evaluate the facilities.
