Texas School District Receives New Cameras for its Fleet

This spring, Katy Independent School District’s fleet of school buses will receive security cameras from Safety Vision, reported the Community Impact Newspaper.

The install process will begin during winter break, with a completion date of March 13, 2019 expected.

Each bus will reportedly have eight cameras that provide maximum visibility for both inside and outside the school buses. It will reportedly help monitor students leave with their correct guardians and will be able to monitor other vehicles in the event of an accident.

The cameras will also be equipped with Wi-Fi and can up uploaded to KISD’s transportation facilities whenever the bus returns to the barn.

The total project cost about $2.5 million, and was funded by the 2017 voter-approved bond. The new cameras are an upgrade to an existing system that has been in place since the mid-1980s.
