"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 said, before recommending that the BOE approve the agreement.

"Given the economic times we're in, we could not do that," McGhee said.

"The reason he wasn't armed was that he might be breaking up a fight, and when you're breaking up a fight with a bunch of kids, it would be fairly easy to grab that weapon," McGhee said.
