ND School Safety Bill could Help Upgrade Security - Valley News Live - KVLY/KXJB - Fargo/Grand Forks

ND School Safety Bill could Help Upgrade Security

Posted: Updated:

Another brand new bill proposal out of the North Dakota state senate could make schools state wide, a bit safer.

Under the proposed bill 20 thousand dollars in grant money would be given to every school district to help upgrade their security systems. Secured entrances, video surveillance , and automatic lock downs are at the core of new safety features schools may consider utilizing.

Currently in Fargo all schools are equipped with security cameras and a system that would lock a school down in an instant. All the same, the school district says they would accept a state grant that could make schools here safer.

"We certainly are looking forward to opportunities to enhance what we currently do and anything that the state can do would be helpful in that regard. We certainly would welcome that." Says Broc Lietz, Fargo public schools business manager.

Out in Valley City the superintendent has already been looking to update their security with secure entrances at their four facilities. They estimate the cost of such an upgrade will cost them 50 and 100 thousand dollars. Not cheap for just four facilities upgrades.
