2 cities work to keep their schools safe
Members of the board’s Policy Committee have started crafting a set of rules and procedures that cover a range of safety measures such as identification badges for adults, surveillance cameras and locked doors.
“It kind of gives you a barometer of where you’re at,” said Ron Robidas, the city’s security manager.
Former school superintendent Thomas Brennan said he was told the four schools undergoing audits should not be publicly named. He earlier identified two of them as Central High School and Beech Street Elementary School.
Nashua committee members reviewed parts of a proposal that would require all adults in city school buildings to have a badge or pass that identifies who they are and what their role is in the building. Teachers and school staff will have electronic photo ID badges that can be used to lock and unlock doors to classrooms and to the building where they work.
Once school begins, all doors to buildings will be locked. Cameras will monitor visitors who arrive and ring a buzzer at the front entrance. School staff will ask each visitor for their name and the reason for the visit to make sure no one entering the building poses any type of risk to students.
“Or it may be parents who don’t trust what’s occurring in a classroom,” he said. “Those issues will be resolved at the entrance.”
