Now is the Time to Invest in Improved Security for K-12 Schools
The Push for Infrastructure Development Creates Opportunity
With lots of discussion in Washington about infrastructure, we shouldn’t forget that schools are just as important as roads, bridges, and broadband. The closure of schools with the pandemic brought home just how essential the safe operation of schools is to the fabric of every community.
Fortunately, schools in Texas don't have to wait for the dust to settle on a federal infrastructure plan. The last Coronavirus relief bill (CRRSA) provided an additional $54.3 billion in aid to elementary and secondary schools. And that funding is applicable to much-needed K-12 security upgrades for schools in San Antonio and other cities around the state.
That money can be used for all types of security infrastructure improvements in schools. As school administrators and district security officials explore how to fully reopen schools safely this fall, let’s take a closer look at some of the most valuable school security solutions below.
