The district will reportedly relocate the classrooms where the deadly shooting took place last May

Law enforcement agencies are deployed at Santa Fe High School, located in Galveston County, because of the shooting incident that happened in the morning of May 18, 2018.

Trustees of Santa Fe Independent School District approved new safety measures, last night.

Media outlets report the board decided to install new locks inside classrooms, remodel the front entrance to the school with bulletproof glass, and install new alarms and panic buttons in classrooms.

The Galveston County Daily News reports about 1.5 million dollars will be spent on a series of updates, many to be completed before the school year begins. 

The district will reportedly relocate the classrooms where the deadly shooting took place last May.

The board did not vote on whether to install metal detectors donated to the district.
