Board approves new ‘buzz-in’ security measures for Whitewater schools
WHITEWATER A new security system involving video cameras that would allow visitors to be verified before they’re let into a school building was approved by the Whitewater Unified School District School Board Monday, according to a story in the Daily Jefferson County Union.
The board gave its approval to spend $28,000 on the system that would be installed in all five of its schools.
Whitewater School District Administrator Eric Runez said he and Whitewater Police Chief Lisa Otterbacher had been discussing safety procedures at the schools in light of the school shooting last month in Newtown, Conn.
Runez said other safety procedures would be implemented internally, but not be made public.
