The Dothan City School Board is one step closer to boosting safety in local schools. They’ve finally made a motion that will get fire alarms installed.
It seems like the issue started back in May, when news broke about Honeysuckle Middle School's fire alarms not working.
But according to Dothan City School Superintendent Dr. Leon Hobbs, installing new fire alarms in all Dothan City Schools has been planned since last August.
Although last night’s meeting brought the Dothan City School Board one step closer to installing these features, some parents who have been pushing for this are still skeptical.
Of the two bidders who applied for the job, Sanders Security won the bid.
Dr. Hobbs is planning to work with them right away in prioritizing which schools will have the systems installed and the order they will go in.
The new fire alarm systems will be installed at Dothan High School, Beverley Middle School, Honeysuckle School, Pass Academy and Dothan Technology Center.
Other major projects the Dothan City School Board is working on include re-roofing Kelly Springs Elementary School and renovating Dothan High School.
