Revelations about alleged shooter prompt policy review in Madison Area school districts

Gena Kittner & Gayle Worland:

The Madison and Middleton-Cross Plains school districts are reviewing their enrollment policies after a 21-year-old man who police said shot and killed a rival gang member successfully enrolled this fall as a Middleton High School student under an alias.

"As a result of this incident, we are reviewing our current policies and procedures to determine what, if any, changes will be made to our enrollment process," said district spokeswoman Michelle Larson.

Middleton records show the man, Ivan Mateo-Lozenzo, had previously attended West High School in Madison. But Madison district officials last week would not confirm he ever attended the school.

Still, Madison Superintendent Dan Nerad said the district will review its enrollment policies.

"I cannot tell you where this will lead, but we will have conversations about it," Nerad said.
