  • Tighter security eyed at high school, Oka Hutchins, Mount Desert Islander (01/23/2009)
      ...Since the security report was issued, parents and educators have raised concerns regarding the prospect of dramatically heightened security. “We’re struggling with the idea of having a strict security climate inhibit the culture of our school,” said Ms. Leighton.

      The school is working on improving its security, said superintendent Rob Liebow. “It’s just how you do that most effectively. We want to take the most reasonable course of action without making the place less student friendly or less friendly to the public.”
