NYC officials unveil timeline for locking campus doors, beginning with elementary schools
In the wake of a deadly school shooting in Nashville, New York City officials sought to reassure families Friday that they are beefing up school security.
City officials said the work to outfit schools with video-equipped doorbells will start at elementary schools in May. Schools Chancellor David Banks said the rollout would take place “over a number of months” with the goal of reaching all school buildings by next spring.
Currently, school visitors must sign in with school safety agents. But under the new plan, they would first need to be buzzed into the building instead of walking in through an unlocked door.
