NASHUA – City schools will be even safer come September, after the Board of Education approved a $2.01 million security project Monday night.

The board awarded the Access Control project, approved on May 7 by the Finance and Operations Committee, to Securadyne of Wilmington, Mass., bringing the district one step closer to completing a project that was proposed in 2008.

The project will upgrade security features at all city schools, adding security cameras and key card access systems, and improving existing security infrastructure at the high schools.

The security upgrades will cost slightly more than the $1.9 million the district has left in bonded funding approved by the city Board of Aldermen earlier this year. The additional cost will be funded from the district’s deferred maintenance account or other account that has a surplus after the current fiscal year.

Board members had a detailed discussion about the costs of this project Monday night, after a representative from the lowest bidder for the project, which was not selected, asked the board to think about both proposals before approving the project. Still, the board unanimously voted to move the project forward with Securadyne.
