Schools are a buisness; most bussiness have picture ID that must be diplayed at all time with access card coding inbedded in them. Each floor (room) you like access to you have to have your ID scan and if autorize you gain access. Why is this not standard process in all our school along with othr process mention in this article?

I moved from Virginia to Edina three years ago. My children's elementary school in Fairfax County, VA implemented locked doors and secure front entry with a remote camera five years ago. Not sure why MN is so slow to understand basic building security, it may not stop all people but it is an attempt to show parents they are concerned about security.
