Board approves cameras for school buses in Alcorn County

By The Associated Press

CORINTH — The Alcorn School Board has approved the purchase of 10 camera systems to be installed on local buses.

The two-camera Seon Trooper system was chosen over the Spartan brand. The Seon cameras cost $1,306 each for a total of $13,064.

Board President Carroll Morton tells the Daily Corinthian that some of the cameras are expected to be installed by the first day of school on Aug. 4 and others by the second week of school.

Assistant schools superintendent Wayne Henry says principals at each school will play a part in deciding which buses are equipped with a camera.
