The Council Rock School District is beefing up security in the wake of last year's school shooting in Connecticut, doubling its numbers of security cameras, expanding card access systems, and adding security personnel.

The district's 10 elementary schools and three middle schools will receive most of the roughly $1 million in security improvements, Superintendent Mark Klein said. The school board approved the expenditure last week.

Council Rock's two high schools use the bulk of the district's 100 security cameras, as well as an employee card access system, Klein said. The district will install 150 more cameras in the elementary and middle schools. The cameras will not be placed inside classrooms; instead, they will monitor school entranceways and other areas, including outside the buildings, he said.
