The Lafayette School District board has approved the installation of four surveillance cameras at Lafayette Elementary School and Stanley Middle School.

The school district hopes that the installation of these cameras will deter some potential crime and vandalism from occurring.

Despite insurance covering the cost of much of the recent vandalism and crime at the schools, the school district has still had to spend $14,000 on insurance deductibles to cover the incidents.

The Lafayette School District has allocated $30,000 of the budget to surveillance equipment, although the system they are likely to put in to place will cost $16, 542.
