US school district to overhaul massive access control network
A Texas school district has revealed plans to carry out a massive $12m access control upgrade across its 23 campuses, a news report has been able to suggest.
Board members with the Pearland Independent School District issued a bond proposal recently that would give each school a secure front entrance featuring bullet resistant glass, among other security measures.
The renovations would put security vestibules at every school that would be locked and controlled by each front office. Visitors could be buzzed into the main campus after they’ve been vetted by office staff members.
All of the entry and exit doors at the schools would also have automatic locks installed to simplify the lockdown process. Designated school staff members would also receive alerts if doors are left ajar.
Additionally security upgrades include improved video surveillance systems at each school and better playground security.
