Just a idea;
1.Lock all the outside doors, and replace those doors with doors that have bullet proof layers inside,some banks use these.The window glass around the doors can be replaced by glass that is bullet proof, like banks use, or glass that has a heavy wire mesh inside the glass panels, that has to be cut with heavy wire cutters, boys and girls town used some of this product.No person could shoot their way in from outside, like Sandy Hook.
2.Have one way in , that uses the( buzz in )idea,meaning everyone that visits the school would have to be buzzed in.
3. Install those bullet proof doors on all inside doors ,with a deadbolt on the inside of the door.
4.Install a alarm system , that will be sounded in the school, if there is trouble ,someone trying to enter the building that shouldnt be there. That alarm tells the staff to get the students in rooms and lock those bullet proof doors. That alarm, is also sent to the police station ,so they can respond.The outside and inside doors would slow a bad guy down long enough, for police to respond.This is just a idea,and yes will cost money at first, but could be mantained at very low cost.I beleave our childrens lives could be kept safe,and the program tweaked as needed.That bullet proof product can also be purchased in 4 by 8 sheets,kinda looks like sheet rock, can be cut with a saw, but you cant shoot through it.Bank, and pharmacy counters are wraped with it, giving those employees a safe place to hide from a bad person with a gun.

They'll never put out the money. They won't pull from their precious sports programs.

Why would it have to come from the sports programs anymore than from the English budget, of the maintenance budget? Bet it won't be long and there will be grants available - maybe sponsored by the NRA themselves, but they won't bother unless the community demands something safer - which is why great ideas like this one should be presented to the school board.

It should be REQUIRED that ALL citizens take a class on school finance. It is not as simple as, "We have $X million. How much do you want to give to this? Or that?"

You really have no idea how little control and flexibility the administrators have.

Maybe not in Rolla, but in MANY of the local school districts,$0 of school money goes to athletics. Ticket sales, concessions, and booster clubs pay for everything...uniforms, referees, travel, coach salaries...EVERYTHING!

Are they locking those doors yet? Im new to the district,but my grand children tell me the doors are unlocked .I dont have a degree in school finance either, but I would think that schools being secure would trump most anything else.I have five grand kids in the schools.

If I were on the staff there, I would be asking the question, why those doors are not locked.They are in as much danger as the students.I hope they arent putting saving money instead of saving life.

I work at one of the schools and all the outside doors are locked now except the one leading straight into the office. It doesn't put me at complete ease but it helps. My children attend an elementary school and I know they are safe there.
