Madison schools getting new security doors | Community Spirit
Madison, AL (WAFF) - Madison City Schools will have some new security features thanks to a $10,000 contribution from Madison County Commissioner Steve Haraway.
The money will be put towards a double door entrance system where visitors will be able to enter a foyer freely, but be buzzed into the school itself by a staff member. The bidding process is already underway and work could begin as soon as this spring.
"I can't thank Commissioner Haraway enough for all that he has done for Madison City Schools," Madison City Schools Superintendent Dr. Dee Fowler said. "He has been very supportive as a parent, booster, Madison City Council member and now as a county commissioner. When he learned that we were working on the security entrances, he called and asked how he could help make the project work and be accomplished quickly."
Haraway's appropriation will be combined with school system resources and $30,000 grant secured by state Sen. Bill Holtzclaw to help expand and accelerate security improvements.
