BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi school district has completed the first phase of a $2 million dollar project to increase campus safety at two schools.

WLOX-TV (https://bit.ly/1QhZR4Y) reports two schools in the Bay-Waveland School District in Bay St. Louis have installed several new security features as part of the Safety Infrastructure Project. Bay State High School and Bay-Waveland Middle School have both installed new fencing, energy-efficient LED lighting and surveillance cameras. The schools have also added parking spaces and upgraded sidewalks to be more accessible for people with disabilities.

The renovations were prompted by the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut three years ago.

The project’s next phase will be to move the entrance of Bay High School next summer.
