It is official. The Dallas Independent School District Board of Trustees backed the plan proposed by DISD Police Chief Craig Miller to spend $4.5 million for safety and security upgrades. During their monthly meeting on Thursday, February 28 trustees approved recommendations made by Chief Miller which will include eye ports in portable classrooms, extra security cameras, and hi-tech entry systems in all District elementary schools.
Additional recommended security upgrades, district-wide:
• Elementary Schools would have electronic door buzzers and card-reader systems
• Secondary Schools would have more security cameras installed
• All portable buildings from elementary through secondary schools would receive one-way observation portals
All safety measures are to be in place by the 2013 school year.
