Montana school official apologizes for plagiarism

   FLORENCE, Mont. (AP) -- The superintendent of a western Montana school
district has apologized for plagiarizing a column written by a Georgia school official
concerning school safety following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in
   Florence-Carlton School District Superintendent John C. McGee admitted copying
the work of Fulton County School System Superintendent Robert Avossa after
an anonymous blogger last month posted a link to both articles.
   The column McGee claimed as his appeared on the front of the January edition of
the district's newsletter.
   McGee replaced the name of the Georgia school district with his school district, and
omitted the number of police officers at Fulton County schools. Other than that it
appeared word for word.
   McGee told the Ravalli Republic  he wanted to get the newsletter out on time.
