LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — The Los Angeles Unified School District board has approved a plan to upgrade safety at more than six dozen preschools.
The $7 million dollar plan, which includes security gates equipped with video cameras, is funded by a bond measure passed by voters.
Planning for the security upgrades at several campuses has been 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.
Most of the schools will get new security systems.
The projects are expected to be completed by the end of the 2013 school year.
