School board approves card swipe system

By on December 16, 2011

KANELAND—The Kaneland School Board on Monday voted 6-0 to approve the purchase and installation of a card swipe security system for Kaneland Middle School and all four elementary schools.

Board member Tony Valente was absent from the meeting.

According to a document from Dr. Julie-Ann Fuchs, assistant superintendent for business, the card swipe system will allow administration to better control access to each school building, especially during non-school hours.

The cost to purchase and install the security system is $63,021—a quote proposed by Pentegra Systems.
