Palatine Community Consolidated School District 15 recently issued the following announcement.

In an effort to provide enhanced safety and security, the Board of Education approved the development of bidding documents for the construction of controlled entrances at 11 District 15 schools. Once complete, all schools in the district will have controlled entrances for visitors.

Currently, nine of District 15's 20 schools have entrances that limit a visitor's access to only the main office when entering the front doors. At 11 schools, the main office is not directly connected to the front vestibule.

Architectural firm STR will now develop documents that will allow the district to solicit bids for the building modifications. Once bids are received, the board will be asked to vote to approve an identified vendor to complete the construction work. If approved, work will be completed during the summers of 2019 and 2020.
