Batavia High School is purchasing a security system that will require authorized card access. While no previous incidents occurred due to poor security, upgrades are being made merely to prevent any from ever occurring.
The campus plans to issue faculty and students new ID cards that gives them a contactless form of entry to the campus grounds and facilities. Only authorized cards will gain access to the exterior doors, other than the main entrance which will use a security camera to monitor who is entering and exiting.
City school superintendent, Margaret Puzio, says that if all goes well with the new system at the high school that similar systems will be implemented in the middle school and then the three elementary schools.
