District to Install 89 New Security Cameras

LONGVIEW, Wash. — The Longview School District is spending $166,700 through its capital projects levy and a matching federal grant to purchase 89 new security cameras and two laptop computers.

According to the preliminary plan, 35 cameras will be placed at Mark Morris High School; 37 at R.A. Long High School; and 17 at Olympic, Northlake, Kessler, Columbia Heights and Mint Valley elementary schools.
