Wichita school board members on Thursday approved contracts worth nearly $69,000 to complete controlled-access entryways at 21 school buildings.
After the work is completed this summer, nearly all Wichita elementary schools will have secured entries, said Wichita spokeswoman Wendy Johnson. Caldwell Elementary School, which is undergoing an expansion and renovation as part of the 2008 bond issue, will have a secured entryway when that project is complete next year, Johnson said.
The board met briefly Thursday, the last day of school for Wichita students, for its annual end-of-year business meeting. Members passed several consent items, including contracts with Ziegler Electric Service Inc. and Southwestern Electrical Co. to install secure-entry controls at 21 elementary and K-8 schools.
No other action was taken.
