Lincoln Public Schools Superintendent Steve Joel told the Lincoln Board of Education Tuesday evening that security continues to be a topic of ongoing discussion in light of the Newtown tragedy.

A meeting to discuss possible collaborative security efforts has been set up for: 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 5 in Room 113 of the County City Building – for a gathering of the Board of Education, Superintendent, Lincoln City Council and Mayor.

"We are beginning the process of looking introspectively at our school district in terms of security, but also looking at collaborative partnerships," Joel said. "This might need to be more of a community solution…It's a sad commentary today that we have to spend this much time on security, but I can tell you discussion of what used to be testing and assessment – has been replaced by discussion of security.  We must do everything in our power to keep our youngsters safe."
