FINN ROCK: The McKenzie School Board got a dose of sticker shock last Wednesday when a bid for limiting access at key entry doors arrived with a $25,000 price tag. Jason Davis, the district’s technology coordinator, has been exploring options to make the campus safer for students. He outlined a strategy for installing magnetic locks and cameras at building entrances. The locations included the front doors of the high school and administration buildings as well as two more at the elementary school.
