LAUSD Preschools To Get Security Upgrades

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — The Los Angeles Unified School District board approved a plan Thursday to upgrade safety at more than six dozen preschools.

The $7 million plan, which includes installation of security gates equipped with video cameras, was funded by a bond measure passed by voters.

Planning for the security upgrades at several campuses was in the works for over a year.

Officials surveyed over a hundred preschools in the district and chose 76 to receive improvements that range from $50,000 to $200,000 in cost.

Most of the schools were slated to get new security systems.

The projects were expected to be completed by the end of the 2013 school year.
