APS Board Meets To Discuss Security Camera Expansion

The Alpena Public Schools Board of Education met early Monday morning to discuss a few proposals for the remainder of the year.

Some of these included plans to change the health curriculum, update web content guidelines, as well as to upgrade and expand security camera coverage at Alpena High School.

The board recommended the purchase of 132 cameras inside of the school, and to delay the installation of outside cameras until a later date. This project would require just over $54,000 of the $256,000 set aside for high availability technology device purchases, and would also include electronic storage equipment for the cameras.

The exterior camera project would cost an estimated additional $40,000-$60,000, and would be delayed for a possible spring break installation. However this proposal will be revisited then and the costs will be estimated with more details at that time.
