The Fayette County Board of Education approved $320,000 worth of new security technology on April 24.

The board voted 5-0 to use SPLOST funds to install interior and/or exterior access control devices and upgrade control systems at schools as well as the technology building, the transportation complex and the BOE building. Three buildings will also get wired active threat lockdown buttons. New security cameras and/or common fiber will be installed at the Goza Road complex, BOE office, North Fayette and Peachtree City Elementary, Rising Starr Middle, and all high schools. The work will be done July 2017 to July 2018.
