School District Spends $29M to Upgrade Security

 Wednesday, July 8, 2015 | Thibodaux, LA

A Louisiana school district will spend $29 million in 10 years on school safety after a board vote July 1.

The Lafourche School Board decided on the spending, which includes $3 million annually, after voters redirected construction funds to school security, dailycomet.com reports.

In the field of access control the changes will include converting all schools to single-point entry with new locks, buzz-in systems and metal detectors in some cases. Other upgrades include a new intercom system, fire alarm system, crisis-alert system and hiring more school police officers with handheld radios.

The school board split the money up so $21.2 million will go towards construction, $4 million will go to additional staff and $1.4 million will be spent on equipment. This year the school will spend $2.75 million on security upgrades.
