There is nothing wrong with additional security. Do you want just anybody to walk into your child's school without being detected? Being proactive on security is a good thing. The district has over 20 AED's throughout the district. Only once has an AED been used and that saved a person's life. Is it a waste of money to have AED's in buildings even though they might never be needed? A security guard/cameras may never be needed but if they are needed I think you would appreciate them being in school. For those who say the state should pay, could you please give a detail plan that would result in the state providing that money for every district in the state.

First of all the city/placed School Resource Officers in the 2 high school, with their secondary duties to respond to incidents at the middles, secondly the security upgrades are most needed at the elementary schools were the majority of the offices have no ability visually observe who is coming or going through the front doors

Curly1.. I'm not against safety but I am not fond of double dipping. Recently we were informed the schools hired security officers to walk the halls, talk to the kids and make their presence be known. So what I see is the school making a special room for the security people to sit and watch monitors instead of being on their feet doing what we were told they would do, out where the kids can see them. I still don't think minot schools are that dangerous anyway. Might be some bullies get caught on camera or maybe even some misbehaving by teachers.

I voted no last bond issue for schools. I think security is needed and so is the space. I told everyone last time I would vote no because the bond was not specific enough. This seems more pinpointed. I will vote yes now unless something I see changes.

With " 6 BILLION " in the State Treasury why is the State not Building the needed Schools instead of letting the Burden of Property Taxes comtinue to GUT the people living there?

What about the Two other schools being built in Minot?

Is it the Teachers or the Students that require all that extra security? Must be getting awful dangerous to be a teacher or a student in Minot, I don't believe it though.
