One improvement they’ve made is changing the camera system from an analog to a web-based digital system.

“They’re much more reliable, better cameras, it’s an upgrade overall,” said MacLaughlin, “Another improvement that we’re looking at, and that we’ve completed it at the elementary building and are working in at the middle and high school, is our buildings are completely secure as far as locked doors.  And we’re putting buzzers and cameras at the front doors.  So we’ve centralized the entrances and exits, so people come in, and we can kind of control access to our buildings.

The total cost of the project is between $7,000 and $8,000 because they are using in-house labor.
