Overall, Siano said each safety and security investment the $126 million bond would bring to Norman schools provides administration and teachers with more time to stay safe.
“There is only a small amount of time an intruder can act before a school and law enforcement reacts,” Siano said. “The more obstacles that you create, like secure entryways and enclosed classrooms, the more time you give school officials to protect themselves and students.”
The bond will come to a vote on Feb. 11. More information about the bond can be found at norman.k12.ok.us/ beginning in January.
