MADISON SCHOOL GETS ACCESS CONTROL

by Christian Mower on August 2, 2013

THE MADISON SCHOOL DISTRICT IS INSTALLING AN ELECTRONIC ACCESS CONTROL AND VIDEO MONITORING SYSTEM AT MADISON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

SAU 13 SUPT. LOU GOSCINSKI SAYS MADISON VOTERS APPROVED A WARRANT ARTICLE IN MARCH TO SPEND UP TO $12,000 ON THE PROJECT.

HE SAYS the MASS SHOOTINGS AT SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN NEWTOWN, CONN. IN DEC. 2012 WEIGHED HEAVILY ON THE MINDS OF SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS WHO SUGGESTED THE INSTALLATION.

STAFF AND FACULTY MEMBERS WILL BE ABLE TO SWIPE A CARD TO ENTER AND LEAVE THE SCHOOL THROUGH LOCKED DOORS AND VIDEO WILL ALLOW SCHOOL OFFICIALS TO SEE WHO IS ENTERING AND LEAVING.

GOSCINSKI SAYS SECURITY EXPERTS ALSO RECOMMENDED INSTALLING THE SYSTEM AFTER THEY CONDUCTED A NO-COST ASSESSMENT AT THE VILLAGE ROAD SCHOOL IN APRIL.

GOSCINSKI SAYS TWO COMPANIES HAVE ALREADY SUBMITTED PROPOSALS AND THEY WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL EARLY MONDAY AFTERNOON, (AUG. 5, 2013) BEFORE BEING OPENED AND CONSIDERED BY MEMBERS OF THE SCHOOL BOARD.
