In the aftermath of the Newtown, Connecticut shootings, AISD officials are wasting little time beefing-up security.
The first step is a more secure entry system for the district's elementary campuses.
School board members are expected to begin accepting bids soon on an electronic entry system that requires guests to be buzzed-in before they can enter.
Those systems will first be installed in the district's 37 elementary schools.
They should be up and running by next semester.
Some campuses had instituted their own security measures, like locking all the doors.....
But, this way everything will be uniform at all campuses.
AISD spokeswoman Holly Shelton says they're always looking for better ways to increase security.
The electronic entry system works like any buzz-in system. You first have to push a button and speak with the operator before gaining entry.
The electronic entry system will also have a video camera to allow the operator to see who is trying get inside before gaining entry.
