Middletown school officials, police and parents are working together to heighten security in the district's 17 schools in the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, Conn., and the numerous school and campus shootings that have occurred throughout the country since.
Middletown Public School District Superintendent William George III joined township police officers and administrators from the township elementary, middle and high schools last week at the Monmouth County Police Academy in Freehold for a school-security workshop conducted by the FBI.
