The way visitors enter and exit buildings in the school could soon change. Currently have staff at the main entrance to direct vistors. The district now wants to have a series of check points for people entering the building. They’re currently conducting a survey asking parents for input. Joanne Palmer used to be an elementary school teacher in Illinois. she tells k-i-m-t it is necessary to have additional security measures in schools.

“Things were a lot different then, we weren't seeing all the problems that we're seeing in the schools today.”

The survey ends June 30th and school leaders will use the information to see what are the best options for additional security.
