Coeur d’Alene school officials, rattled by a recent intruder in one of the high schools, say they’re eager to see a major security upgrade completed this fall. All Coeur d’Alene district schools will have front-entrance security doors installed by Dec. 6, the school board was told Monday night. Visitors can gain access only after using a video and voice intercom system to check in. Officials hope the tighter security will thwart the kind of intrusion police are investigating at Lake City High School. A young man walked into the school Oct. 24 carrying a guitar case, entered an empty classroom and visited other areas before leaving, video surveillance showed. Later that day, a car was stolen from a teacher’s lot at the school, police said. The school district is spending several million dollars improving security, including more surveillance cameras in buildings and three cameras on each bus/Scott Maben, SR.
Question: Do you believe the Coeur d'Alene School District is doing all it can, this side of turning our schools into a prison compound, to meet security needs in this increasingly dangerous society?
