At a meeting in Tyler Monday night, Tyler ISD Superintendent Dr. Randy Reid talked to parents about proposed security safeguards at John Tyler High School.
The meeting comes just 5 days after special education teacher Todd Henry was stabbed and killed, allegedly by a student.
Among the proposals at the meeting, Dr. Reid tells KLTV 7 the district has purchased mobile metal detectors that can be put on the John Tyler campus.
The district is also looking into bringing in a security consultant to examine current security procedures, and point out where improvements can be made.
Dr. Reid also mentioned a proposed new alternative school program aimed at keeping troubled students for an extended period of time, if the need arises.
All these proposals will be addressed at a TISD board meeting on Monday, October 5.
