WATCH: KY Superintendent Proposes $13.5M Tax Increase for Security Officers, Metal Detectors

From the Lexington Herald Leader:

Fayette County School Superintendent Manny Caulk unveiled a sweeping plan to make Lexington schools safer — from more counselors to more metal detectors — a plan paid for with $13.5 million in increased property taxes.

“School districts across the nation are investing in initiatives designed to improve school safety,” Caulk said efforts that might include increased security at school buildings or expanding mental health.

“Those efforts are laudable, but the report from our District Safety Advisory Council made it clear that only a comprehensive approach will be successful.”
