Bastrop school board discusses campus safety, lowering tax rate | #schoolsaftey

The Bastrop school board heard from the district’s police chief and security coordinator on Tuesday regarding improved safety measures on campuses.

Scot Bunch, the school district’s police chief, reviewed for the board the adoption of new technology to improve and maintain the safety of Bastrop students.

The department has installed real-time cameras in all schools, and all are equipped with a 911 direct access radio, Bunch said. He said the district has adopted panic buttons and Raptor Technologies — a school safety software that screens visitors and volunteers and responds to emergencies.

Bunch also discussed an upcoming grant, as the state is set to release $800 million to school districts to reinforce campus exteriors and to bolster safety. Bunch said the district will send a detailed plan to the state on how it intends to use the money, and once the funds are distributed, Bastrop can add additional fencing to school exteriors, including windows, doors and locks.
