Mom Pays For Security At Child's School

Posted: Updated:

FLAGLER BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A north Florida woman is paying an armed deputy to patrol her child's elementary school due to safety concerns following the shooting that killed 20 children in Newtown, Conn.
    
The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/11NUhQl) reports Laurie Lauria has given the Flagler County School District enough money to cover the costs of keeping a deputy at Old Kings Elementary School for two months. And Superintendent Janet Valentine says Lauria has agreed to cover the costs through the end of the year.
    
There are six resource deputies at the county's high school and middle schools. Officials have considered putting deputies at two elementary schools, but say the costs are prohibitive.
    
Flagler County Sheriff Jim Manfre says he appreciates Lauria's concern, but asking a parent to pay for security is a "Band-Aid solution."
