LaFargeville School Gets $480K For Security, Technology
LaFargeville Central School has been awarded more than $480,000 for technology and infrastructure upgrades.
It's part of the state's Smart Schools Bond Act.
Ninety percent of the money is going toward security at the school and the rest is earmarked for technology infrastructure upgrades.
One of the projects will be a new entry system at the main entrance.
"We feel like we have a secure building to start, but I don't think it's anything we can stop getting better at and we're going to get better at our security. It may be a little bit of a hardship for our families and people coming to visit us, but at the same time, I think everybody can agree safety of our children has to be first," said Travis Hoover, district superintendent.
The superintendent says the work should start this fall.
