Several Memphis Shelby County Schools will be receiving millions of dollars of security and safety upgrades when the board approved to issue the funding on Tuesday.
- Frayser Achievement Elementary School
- Corning Achievement Elementary School
- Georgian Hills Achievement Elementary School
- Whitney Achievement Elementary School
Board members said these four schools were picked first because they were most in need of basic security measures so they were the priority. However, they also said this is just the beginning and they aim to improve more schools in the district.
The measures taken will be surveillance cameras and alarm systems to ensure doors remain locked at all times. Other upgrades will include licenses, control equipment, communication systems and servers.
