The district plans to buy 70 cameras, enough for every school officer to use one, said spokeswoman Latisha Gray, in an email.
She said APS still can use its part of the grant funding regardless of other districts’ participation.
The cost to APS will depend on the type of device and video storage plan the district chooses, and the district will seek community input on those options.
APS held one meeting this week to discuss the project and will hold a second community meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Benjamin E. Mays High School Auditorium.
