KINGMAN, AZ (AP) -

The Kingman Unified School District has a plan to beef up school security in the immediate future without breaking the bank.

One of the aspects of the plan hinges on getting teachers to lock classroom doors when class is in session.

Kingman Middle School teacher Ron Bahre suggested the idea to the district and board.

The schools' doors open outward and can be locked with a key from the outside. When used like this, the inside remains unlocked.

During a lockdown situation, the doors can be locked from the inside -- leaving both sides of the doors locked.

The Kingman Daily Miner says Bahre also has suggested an alarm separate from all other bells that ring on a daily basis that tells employees to initiate lockdown procedures.
