About 80 per cent of the province’s 4,000 elementary schools will have their doors locked and be equipped with front-door buzzers and security cameras.
The schools asked for and received the funding to implement the security measures.

The security changes were put in place after the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
The Upper Grand District School Board did not ask for provincial money. First, it wouldn’t cover the cost of implementation. And secondly, there was no maintenance money.

Some schools have video surveillance, and that will be upgraded over the summer. The board has purchased “beacons” for any high school room that’s considered “high noise”. That way students can be informed of a lock-down.
At the Catholic three schools will get some provincial money. Education Director Don Drone says most schools have locks but with portable classrooms, its highly impractical to have some doors locked, all the time.
