Eagle Point School Safety Committee Reviews Costs
The Eagle Point School District Weapons Safety committee was poorly attended Thursday night prompting the Districtís committee facilitator to cancel the planned speaker and instead hold an informal discussion about relative costs for the different proposed deterrents.

Preliminary figures for hiring a resource officer for each school would cost $575,000 initially with an annual cost of $525,000 thereafter. Security glass for one way viewing would cost $22,000 and bullet-proof glass would cost around $75 a square foot.

Armed security guards for each campus would come in the range of $450,000 a year. A safety measure chart listed the cost of training and insuring teachers to carry weapons was listed at $48,900.
