Mansfield Schools to Spend $400,000 to Upgrade Security System
Mansfield City Schools are set to spend more than $400,000 to upgrade its security system this summer. The Mansfield School Board of Education approved the installation of a lockdown system, which would prevent intruders from entering a classroom once engaged.
RichlandSource.com reports, the system is designed to protect classrooms from school shootings and other emergency situations. The Smart Boot will be installed by a Michigan company and can hold 16,000 pounds once engaged. The cost was not planned for the budget, but will see it installed at Mansfield Senior High School. The lockdown system could be ready by the start of the 2018-19 school year.
