Wisconsin School District Rolls Out Access Control
- By Dian Schaffhauser
Racine Unified School District in Wisconsin has awarded Vuance, a provider of radio frequency verification solutions, a $1.4 million contract to install its MASC security solution into 31 school buildings and two administrative buildings.
Under terms of the contract, Vuance will install security systems that provide card access to the Racine Unified Schools for staff as well as cameras to monitor school entrances and card readers on doors normally used by staff and students during the day. Cards will also function as staff IDs.
The plan also calls for installing video phones at the main entrance to enable visitors to gain access to the school during the day.
The district has 21,000 students and 33 campuses.
