Whitesboro taking bids for security upgrades at schools

By  | 

WHITESBORO, TX -- Whitesboro Superintendent Pete Slaughter says the school board will take bids Monday night, for security upgrades at their schools.

They want to add cameras and access card readers so only authorized people can enter the schools.

He says right now anyone can walk through Whitesboro schools without first going to the office.

Slaughter says the district has twice tried to pass a bond to add security measures but both have failed so they've taken out a loan to make the improvements.

Once they've accepted a bid he hopes to have the new equipment installed within 6 to 8 weeks.
