Superintendent Dan Zylstra said the purchase is over $200,000, but a Secured School Safety grant award in the amount of $100,000 will be used toward the claim.
He stated in a previous meeting that the classroom doors are original to the building. Some doors will be keyed differently to secure different parts of the building and the grant funds will also help with that cost.
