Menomonie School District making upgrades to security systems


Menomonie (WQOW) - Security upgrades are on the way for an area school district.

The Menomonie School District's superintendent says she has received numerous calls security at Menomonie's seven schools. The district decided to add increased security measures, like additional video monitors and doorbell systems to several of their schools so every school has them. The superintendent says the upgrades will cost the district around $10,000-12,000.

"Obviously everybody has been heightened in terms of awareness to security and safety issues. We feel very good about many of the protocols that we've put into place, it's pretty hard to be prepared for everything that possibly might happen," says Chris Stratton, the Menomonie Superintendent.

Making school entrances even more secure by addressing sight issues could also be a part of a potential referendum. The board will vote on Monday night about what to include in a possible spring referendum.
