Installation Of New Cameras Complete At Trigg Schools

Trigg County schools are now a step further into the recommendations made by the School Safety Taskforce over the last few months. Chief Information Officer Rory Fundora told board members Thursday evening that all of the new security cameras are installed and working.

Board members approved schematic drawings for the middle and high school security vestibules. Superintendent Travis Hamby says that the project still has numerous steps to go through to get to the point of installation.

The installation of the vestibules will mean some modifications will be made to the high school front office, with the middle school office and front entrance of the school moving to where the current side door entrance is located. Also approved during the meeting, was the go-ahead to move forward with a company called Spyglass. Spyglass will look at the school’s phone bill to find potential savings for the district.

Members also approved a motion for the school system to partner with the Pennyroyal Center to become a Telehealth provider hub for Emergency Mental Health Assessments. The school system will be able to help students who need emergency mental health assessments by using video conferencing technology to be assessed by a mental health care provider. This will help when parents do not have the ability or means to transport their child to the Pennyroyal Center in Hopkinsville. The partnership will be no cost for the school system.
