Superintendent wants safety check for schools

(Continued)

In an interview, School Committee member Jarrod Hochman also expressed satisfaction with the security situation at present.

“I think the superintendent, the chief of police (Robert Champagne) and the mayor (Ted Bettencourt) agree that the personnel in the city do a fantastic job,” he said.

Mastrocola declined to discuss the debate over gun control that’s been ongoing since the Newtown killings. But he suggested that when it comes to security in the future, “the discussion is going to be about mental health. It’s going to change from locks and keys to mental health.”
