SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -
The Sylvania School District is putting more money towards student safety. The district is setting aside money each year for security improvements.
Superintendent Dr. Brad Rieger says one of the main goals in the Sylvania School District is keeping students safe. As part of the capital improvement plan, Sylvania schools will soon be making security changes. Within the next few months, they will be improving current surveillance cameras while adding more.
"We do have cameras in most of our facilities, but we're finding that they are analog and not digital, and so it's time to upgrade them," said Rieger.
Rieger says communication rooms will also be added to every school in the district as part of its A.L.I.C.E. program, a training the district takes very seriously.
"It creates another venue for people in the school site to go and to communicate internally, and externally, if there happens to be a real serious emergency," explained Rieger.
According to Rieger, the district is constantly reviewing safety procedures with its staff.
"For the last two years - and again this year - we've made it a strategic initiative to focus on our safety and emergency procedures," said Rieger.
A total of $170,000 will be set aside each year for the next five years to make the security improvements.
