New security systems are paying off in the Jackson County School System. Superintendent April Howard spoke about the district’s security entrances at the Jackson County Board of Education’s Feb. 4 work session.
JCSS installed security entrances at all the schools this year and Howard said they have been effective.
“We’ve already benefited a few times from those front entrance cameras,” said Howard.
Several board members discussed plans to add more security if the Education Local Option Sales Tax is renewed. This could include the installation of several security cameras at each school.
The district is currently working with several companies and the school resource officers to determine each school’s needs and the costs.
