Middletown Area School District to unveil safety analysis June 19

Posted

Results of an analysis of safety and security at Middletown Area School District schools is to be presented during the next school board meeting on Tuesday, June 19.

The analysis, referred to as a “risk and vulnerability assessment,” has been completed for the school district by Vulnerability Solutions Group LLC, a Mechanicsburg-based consulting firm led by a retired Pennsylvania State Police trooper.

The school board hired VSG to do the assessment for $11,900, but the entire cost to the district for the study has been paid for by a donation from the Phoenix Contact USA company located on Fulling Mill Road in Lower Swatara Township.

Phoenix Contact has also said it will help pay for whatever recommendations in the study that the board chooses to implement.

The company has pledged to donate at least $100,000 to the district to improve safety and security at district schools, following the Feb. 14 mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 people were killed at a school.
