School security improvements discussed at RV
Ways to improve school security at the elementary school and high school at Royal Valley were discussed during the board of education’s meeting Monday night.
Superintendent Aaric Davis reported that he has received one bid from a company in Manhattan so far to increase security at both the buildings in Hoyt.
For an estimated $37,000, a new computer server would be installed to manage and monitor the entrances and exits at both schools.
“Key fob cards would be used by staff to enter and exit doors rather than using brass keys,” Davis said. “We would also have our own card printer to print them on site.”
A key fob is a small, programmable hardware device that provides access to objects, such as doors or vehicles.
