Elementary schools in the Chandler Unified School District will soon have security cameras. The governing board voted 2-1 on three contracts totalling $1.3 million to put a 12-camera system at each of the 29 K-6 schools. Two board members were out of town Wednesday, but there was a quorum with the three other members. Board members Bob Rice and Annette Auxier approved the measure. Board member David Evans voted against it.
Chandler residents approved financing the cameras as part of the November 2010 bond vote.
Chandler’s junior high and high schools already have cameras, spokesman Terry Locke said.
