Earlier this in year in the wake of Newtown, Rye City Schools hired a security firm to review school procedures. At a recent Board of Ed meeting, the firm provoded an update saying the district is in a "good position" while it proceeds with more security work.

Here are the board notes:
"Marcus DePontes and Erroll Brudner of StoneGate Associates, the District's security firm hired earlier this year, provided a presentation on their assessment of the District's security measures. They explained that the District is already in a good position with its emergency management procedures and can now take steps toward the next level.
StoneGate has conducted teacher training and met with school security officers, District officials, police officers and community members. Next, StoneGate will be training principals in the management of security situations and will provide parents with emergency management cards outlining ways to obtain the correct information during an emergency. Additionally, StoneGate is re-writing the District's Emergency Management Plan."
