School officer approved at MCHS - MadisonJournalTODAY
"The substance of this agreement hasn't changed," Madison County Schools Superintendent Mitch McGhee said.
"It still seems like a very positive thing for us and the school system, and I believe it will be for the sheriff's office as well," McGhee
