KINGMAN, Ariz. — The Kingman Unified School District has a plan to beef up
school security in the immediate future without breaking the bank.

The schools’ doors open outward and can be locked with a key from the outside.
When used like this, the inside remains unlocked.

During a lockdown situation, the doors can be locked from the inside _ leaving
both sides of the doors locked.

an alarm separate from all other bells that ring on a daily basis that tells
employees to initiate lockdown procedures.
