SAN ANTONIO -- School boards throughout San Antonio and the surrounding areas are talking more about school safety.
The North East Independent School District reviewed security measures during Monday night's regularly scheduled board meeting.
"Right now, we're just going through everything with a fine tooth comb," said Aubrey Chancellor with NEISD.
Chancellor said the district is looking at extra security measures including adding more school drills and strengthening its school police force.
"Whether that means rotating police officers at the elementary level, whether that means adding some police officers to our force," Chancellor said.
Next Tuesday, Northside Independent School board members are expected to approve more than $20 million dollars to install surveillance cameras at all 75 elementary schools. The money for the cameras is coming a 2010 school bond.
The San Antonio Independent School District is also providing security upgrades as part of the 2010 bond. Those upgrades include adding more security cameras, security fencing, key card access control so visitors would have to be buzzed in, and classroom door locks allowing teachers to lock rooms from the inside.
The Jourdanton school board just approved a full-time officer to patrol the campuses next year. Currently, Jourdanton ISD only has a part-time officer in place.
Meanwhile, the Hunt Independent School District out near Kerrville is considering a number of security measures and one happens to be allowing teachers to carry concealed handguns.
