Lancaster County School District considering panic buttons, safety upgrades

INDIAN LAND, S.C. — Since the summer, the Lancaster County School District has made several safety changes in policy, but now the district wants to invest real money into more safety improvements at every school.

Some of the proposals include panic buttons inside classrooms or hallways, and upgraded communications systems to make it easier to get a message across the schools’ campuses.

In the video at the top of the page, Channel 9′s Tina Terry spoke with district leaders and parents about the need for safety improvements and what it will take to make them happen.
