Nashua schools adopt security policy
The new procedures were adopted as part of Nashua's $2.4 million security upgrade for schools that includes alarms, video monitors, new locks and buzz-in intercom camera system at the main entrance of each building.
"We've tightened everything up and made it official school policy," said Mosher, who added that about 90 percent of the equipment upgrades are complete.
Buzz-in intercom systems and cameras at school entrances will allow school staff to control who enters a building, to ask for identification if there are concerns and to contact police if they feel there are any risks or threats.
However, Superintendent Mark Conrad said the safety rules outline a balanced approach to security into a school setting.
