Despite the overall findings, auditors formulated a list of nine recommendations to improve the general safety and security of the county’s schools. One recommendation suggested implementing a visitor management system in the schools capable of issuing photo identification cards for visitors as well as students and employees. Another recommendation suggested locking and securing all exterior doors during normal school hours.
