TUPELO, Mississippi — The Lee County School District is adding cameras, door access systems and other security upgrades this summer.
Funding comes from a $70,000 grant provided through the state Department of Education.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1FTtZzr ) projects include new camera systems at Shannon Elementary, Shannon Middle and Plantersville Middle and additional indoor and outdoor cameras on eight other campuses.
Verona Elementary and Saltillo Elementary each will receive a door access control system. Doors across campus will remain locked, and teachers will be able to unlock them and access buildings by using their ID badges.
Mooreville Elementary and Saltillo Primary also will receive keyless access to a couple of doors on campus.
Shannon Elementary also will get motion and fire detectors and new wiring for its gym/activity building intercom.
