Kudos to EISD for being proactive with security

In a letter to parents and guardians this week, Ennis ISD Superintendent John Chapman outlined some new safety measures that will be implemented in the 2018-19 school year, while others go into effect immediately. We are giving kudos this week tot he administration this week, but it does not come without some concerns. Particularly when it comes to randomized searches, some see it has necessary while others see it as the district over stepping its bounds a bit. Which got us to thinking, if the district is going to conduct searches why not just get metal detectors, that would scan all those that enter or exit a EISD campus. Outfitting each school with metal detectors can get pricey, so this may not have been cost prohibitive. Other policies that will go into effect are all backpacks now must be clear (the district plans to address student’s personal items at a later date), and extra security gates at various campuses. But when does a school no longer feel like it is a place of learning? Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
