Fifteen months after the Newtown school shootings, Westport’s Board of Finance tonight unanimously approved School Superintendent Elliott Landon’s request for $200,000 to replace each school’s interior door locks with high security ones, as recommended by Kroll Security Advisors.
But the approval did not come without criticism over why it took so long to get to this point, since the Newtown shootings took place in December 2012.
“It just seems to me it took a long time,” said Michael Rea, finance board member, noting that the Stamford Public Schools has similar locks installed last summer.
“I would urge you to move as expeditiously as possible,” he added about other security measures.
