ROCORI School Considers Metal Detectors

COLD SPRING (AP) — The ROCORI school board is considering installing metal detectors after two weapons incidents in two weeks at the middle school.

That option was considered back in 2003 after two students were shot and killed by another student at ROCORI High School.

Superintendent Scott Staska says metal detectors could cost more than $1 million and would require staff to monitor them. Staska says he’s not a fan of metal detectors, but understands the need to discuss safety options with parents.

On April 11, a 13-year-old boy brought a gun to school and allegedly pointed it at students. A female student brought a knife to school on April 20. Staska says the incidents are unrelated.
