Ontario government to fund locked door policy at elementary schools

Premier Dalton McGuinty has announced his Liberal government will provide renewed funding to elementary schools to support a locked door policy.

Currently nearly 850 of the province’s 4,000 elementary schools have been given funding for access device systems such as locking doors, security cameras and buzzers.

The announcement follows last week’s massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
