Kettering City Schools will add 89 security cameras to its two middle schools this winter, increasing the total from 12 to 101.

Why Kettering is adding cameras, and what else the district is planning with more levy funds

Officials said Van Buren Middle School’s camera system will go from four cameras to 28, while the much larger Kettering Middle School will be upgraded from eight cameras to 73.

“Part of the commitment when we passed the (March 2016) levy was to continue to expand safety and security measures throughout the district,” said Ken Lackey, director of business services for the school district. “This was something that was on the wish list — to expand the camera systems at all schools.”
