DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas Independent School District Board of Trustees is set to discuss a proposal which would provide an additional $4.5 million to improve campus security across the district’s schools.

The money would be allocated from the 2008 bond program. The board is scheduled to meet and discuss the matter on Feb. 14.

“The safety and security of the students entrusted in our care is always our top priority,” said Dallas ISD Superintendent Mike Miles in a statement. “Since the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut in December, the Dallas ISD Police Department has conducted a thorough review of district campuses and is making significant recommendations to protect our students. This is the first proposal to go before the board and we look forward to hearing their discussion.”

The administration is recommending that schools be equipped with additional security cameras at secondary campuses. At elementary campuses, electronic door-strike buzzers, 8-camera digital recorder systems, and card-reader systems are being recommended.

The administration also wants to install observation portals in every portable building in the school district.

If approved by the board during its regular meeting on February 28, some of the measures will begin immediately. Other upgrades will be initiated by the start of the 2013-14 school year.
