Schools get more secure

USD 257 board members approved a new security system that will access existing cameras to allow staff to remotely monitor facilities. It will solve a long-standing problem and allow Iola High School secretaries to remotely open the door at the science center and agriculture buildings.

A new security system will allow USD 257 staff to remotely monitor and allow access to facilities.

At Iola High School, for example, it will allow secretaries in the main building to open doors for visitors to the science center or agriculture building, both across the street. 

It also will allow an administrator to lock down all facilities in the event of an emergency, and give local law enforcement the ability to track live activities.
