  • Security Improvements

    Security in our existing and proposed middle schools and high schools is a major design component which is included in the proposed 2019 Bond. The bond includes the following security measures for all proposed new buildings buildings and at all existing middle schools and high schools:
     
    *  Controlled student/visitor building entries, including electronic locking and video camera security for all entryways
    *  Electronic access/locking systems in classrooms interlocked with campus administration and MISD Police
    *  Internal PA and classroom access to phone systems to notify students and staff in case of emergency
    *  Emergency call system to report any classroom incident to the office or campus administrator
    *  Security fencing around perimiter of commons areas, portable classrooms, etc.
    *  Integrated security alarm systems to enhance after-hours access and entry control
    *  Exterior lighting at building entries to increase night security and safety
     
    These security systems will be incorporated into all new building designs and added to each existing and future middle and high school campus. It is anticipated these new security features will be added to existing facilities within 2 years if voters approve the proposed bond.
