New Security Cameras
The school board approved the expenditure of $350,000 for new security cameras at Toombs County's schools.
Nathan Miller, the school system's Technology Director, said "We're in the process of installing a new video security system. This is a project that's been about two years in the making. We've had a lot of issues with the security system at the high school and especially at the primary school. We've been looking for a solution and waiting for the funding to become available, and we're finally at a point where the two have come together at the same time. Ideally, we'd like to begin the installation over the Thanksgiving break."
