CAMERON (February 18, 2013)--Cameron ISD could see some changes to their school buildings if new safety measures are approved.
The Cameron Board of Trustees are looking for new ways to prevent campus tragedies before they begin.
In a meeting Monday night board members will briefly discuss possible safety modifications and will then walk through the various campuses, paying special attention to the entryway.
Among the safety modifications to be introduced include adding a camera or intercom system to buzz visitors through.
“Right now, when visitors walk through the entryway, they are in the halls where the students are,” Cameron ISD Superintendent Collin Clark said Monday.
The new measures would make it so that people that come into the school would have to be let in by an administrator.
Another safety measure to be looked at is to add a window for visitors to check in as well as add curtain walls to separate the entryway from the students.
“It is all in the earliest phase,” Clark said, and nothing has been discussed or worked out in detail yet.
Clark will introduce a cost estimate of what he is calling the “simplest solutions” to the board during Monday night’s meeting.
The meeting is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. and is open to the public until they begin their tour of campuses.
The meeting will take place at the administration building on E. 12th Street.
