In the wake of December’s deadly school shooting in Newtown, Conn., the Rock Hill School Board Monday appears to be taking an aggressive timetable in implementing a set of security needs identified in a report just one day before the incident at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Monday night, the school board heard the results of an in-depth study identifying roughly $2.3 million in security needs. Rock Hill Schools Superintendent Lynn Moody.

Those request included mandatory IDs for employees, more cameras and more locked doors at some facilities.

Moody says the results of the study came the day before the shootings at Sandy Hook.

A decision on the security upgrades could come as soon as the end of this month.
