Surveillance Cameras Installed In New Elementary Schools

New security measures are now in place at Lubbock ISD's newest elementary schools. 

"In this building (Centennial Elementary) we have surveillance cameras throughout the building and we have monitors in several places, " Superintent Wayne Havens said.

Havens says Centennial and Roy W. Roberts Elementaries were built with security in mind. These schools also have an outdoor keypad access system. Since doors are locked during the school day, faculty members are the only ones who can access that keypad and enter.

Havens adds that security upgrades are also being made to other schools in the district. The first day of school for Lubbock ISD is this Monday, August 27th.
