Every year a great deal of time is spent reviewing ACS’s security and internal emergency procedures. A plan was created and it was decided to use our allocated City Security Funds, in addition to our own budget, to expand the school’s security system. We have added several cameras already and have a second phase that will start in a couple of weeks. We have added two exterior cameras; one outside of the student drop-off area, and another one to capture the entire playground. We have installed a cafeteria camera and we are waiting for installation of hallway cameras. We hope that by improved system, it will offer helpful evidence in student conflict and hopefully deter outsiders from vandalizing the school we work so hard to keep beautiful for our children.
